Bearing alloys (Babbitt alloy) are widely used. They usually come in two types: tin-based bearing alloys and lead-based bearing alloys. They have the characteristics of fast running-in and easily make the surface very smooth. They are usually attached to the steel bearing base as a bearing bush. Babbitt alloy bearings have good adaptability, and have automatic adjustment characteristics for small misalignment or defective shafts. Because the appropriate amount of dust or foreign debris that enters the lubricant can be absorbed by this soft material to prevent the shaft from being damaged by adhesion, this embedding property makes them an excellent bearing material. The journal material can be mild steel, hard steel or cast iron.
