It’s a Shaft Bushing
A truck part manufacturer was looking for a bushing to hold an axle in place. To handle the friction of the rotating shaft, the inside radius of the metal part needed to be coated with a synthetic polymer sturdy enough to hold the shaft in place, but non-abrasive to decrease wear. Field Rubber designed a polyurethane coating for the inside dimension of the shaft bushing. This proved to be a much more economical way to solve a wear problem for the customer. The part was produced so that it could be easily replaced at a reasonable price.
