|1. (WO2018021501) IRON-COPPER-BASED OIL-IMPREGNATED SINTERED BEARING AND METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING SAME|
|Title:||IRON-COPPER-BASED OIL-IMPREGNATED SINTERED BEARING AND METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING SAME|
Provided are a novel iron-copper-based oil-impregnated sintered bearing and a method for manufacturing the same, the bearing having minimal hard iron alloy phases and excellent wear resistance and cost performance in a low-rotation, high-load usage condition such as in the output shaft of an electric motor for an automobile. An iron-copper-based oil-impregnated sintered bearing including 10-55% by mass of Cu, 0.5-7% by mass of Sn, 0-4% by mass of Zn, 0-0.6% by mass of P, and 0.5-4.5% by mass of C, the remainder comprising Fe and unavoidable impurities, wherein the area ratio of free graphite dispersed in a metal matrix thereof is 5-35%, the porosity thereof is 15% to 25%, and the hardness of an iron alloy phase in a base thereof is Hv 65-200. In the present invention, flake graphite powder and/or scaly graphite powder having an average particle diameter of 10-100 µm is used.
