UPPER LINKAGES

Due to the hidden position of the upper
pin, reliability is critical. The small contact
area, combined with high loading, requires
a versatile material, such as Orkot®.

UPPER BEARING

Orkot® offers low static and dynamic
friction with minimal stick-slip for smooth
operation over a 20 year service life.

LOWER BEARING

The high sideloading on lower bearings
mean that Orkot® is the perfect material
to replace standard metallic bearings,
whilst providing other benefits.

LOWER LINKAGES

Linkages, such as those within the
retracting actuator, require smooth
operation. Orkot® minimizes stick-slip,
while reducing static and dynamic friction.
