Why are carbide busings better than steal bushings?
Raven Carbide is very comfortable saying that our tungsten carbide bushings will last over 10 times as long as steel bushings used in the same application. (Depending on the application tungsten carbide can last up to 50 times as long as steel but we are going to work from the 10x number)
For example, paying $14.00 for a carbide bushing compared to $7.00 for a steel will have a real cost savings of $56 per carbide bushing.
Carbide Bushing: Cost $14
Steel Bushing: Cost $7 x 10 = $70
In this example you save $56 dollars per bushing by using Raven Carbide Bushings. In addition you will save on labor and by having less production downtime, as bushings are needed to be replaced 10 times less often and production is not halted while bushings are changed.
