If the shafts are to be located radially as well as axially the loads must be compensated for by using flanged bushings or bushings in combination with thrust washers (Fig. 3). The use of flanged bushings and thrust washers is advantageous even by small axial loads, particularly where no suitable thrust surface is available due to material or machining reasons.
When using flanged bushings, it is important to chamfer the housing bore so that it does not come into contact with the flange of the bushing (Fig 4). Thrust washers are usually radially located in a turned recess in the housing and secured by a dowel pin or grub screw as shown in figure (Fig. 5). The necessary measures for this type of fastening can be found in the tables for the GLYCODUR F and GLYCODUR A style bearings.
If a recess cannot be provided in the housing, then the thrust washers can also be secured by using dowel pins, screws or by bonding. To avoid damage, the heads of the pins or screws should be recessed by at least 0,3 mm (0,0118 in) below the gliding bearing surface. The thrust washer should be supported under its entire surface.
