A major medical equipment manufacturer was looking for a cost effective, long life solution for a pivoting joint in a hose pump application on a dialysis machine.
The manufacturer was having difficulty locating a bushing that would meet the needs of their demanding application. Application needs were as follows:
- Low coefficient of friction
