Manufactured and uniquely configured along the internal diameters of component parts.
These patterned channels or slots encourage the flow of lubricant oil on bearing surfaces and work to decrease friction loss and dissipate heat. At SC Industries, we have specialized oil grooving equipment and precisely engineered tooling that enables us to create a wide variety of configurations. Our capabilities include figure-8, double-8, single ellipse, double ellipse, spiral, double start spirals, and more.
The component parts pictured here demonstrate the range of our capabilities. These components were constructed from the toughest alloy steels, and we applied specifically engineered process controls to maintain distortion-free geometries during heat treatment. Rigorous quality assurance processes ensured each pattern, depth, and geometry met the demanding specifications of our customers throughout the heavy equipment and machine building industries.
If you are interested in learning more about our specialized ability to accurately and repeatably create these dimensionally precise groove patterns and how it can improve the performance of your product, contact us today.
