VFS: "Wear" Economics Matter!


More than ever, companies are hard-pressed to find ways to save money in both manufacturing and repair settings. One such way is to use wear parts at pivot points, specifically Tension Bushings manufactured by VFS (Vogelsang Fastener Solutions). Tension Bushings are hollow cylinders with a full-length longitudinal slot ("wavy" or straight), permitting compression and expansion. They protect the structure of low RPM, and low-high impact locations where a shaft is rotating.



VFS Tension Bushings are an excellent cost-saving alternative to solid bushings and can increase the amount of "wear time" between changing existing bushings. Installation is easy in both manufacturing environments and replacements in the field with minimal tools. Chamfers help facilitate pressing these wear parts into a bore without causing damage to the surface of the bore or shaft to which they are fitted.



Vogelsang Fastener Solutions offers same-day shipment on a large variety of sizes in both "wavy" and straight lot designs through their Quick Ship (QS), stocking program. Outer diameters (OD's) from 3-4" to 3 1-2", and up to 3" in length are available from stock. OD's from 4" to 5" are available for special order, as are Tension Bushings needing holes and/or grooves.
