Plane Sliding Bearing
Sliding bearings usually consist of a low friction polymer, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), sliding against a metal plate. This bearing does not accommodate rotational movement in the longitudinal or transverse directions and only resists loads in the vertical direction. Longitudinal or transverse loads can be accommodated by providing mechanical keys. The keys resist movement, and loads in a direction perpendicular to the keyway.
