What are sleeves, and how are they made?
A sleeve is an inconspicuous but extremely important part of almost any machine. In the simplest terms, sleeves are cylindrical elements having a through hole in the central part. They are manufactured from metal bars using modern automatic lathe CNC machines. The most commonly used material is steel (including stainless steel), aluminum and copper alloys, and bronze, which works well where high wear resistance is required.
The manufacturing of sleeves involves machining the material from which they are made. With the help of automatic lathes attached to the CNC automatic lathe, the excess raw material is cut, turned into chips, and the part with the required dimensions – length, diameter, and wall thickness. In addition, the automatic lathe can be programmed to make additional elements in the sleeves during the manufacturing process, such as grooves, holes, or collars.
Applications of sleeves
The spectrum of applications for sleeves is very wide. It includes, among other things, simple fastening techniques but also the manufacture of components of many complex assemblies. Sleeves are commonly used to construct machines and equipment – from small household appliances that everyone has at home through vehicles of all sizes to the largest machines, which are components of production lines. This is because sleeves are used to create sockets for seating bolts or bearings and cylinders – including the bodies of hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders or shock absorbers. Sleeves are also utilized in internal combustion engines to mount moving parts, for example, axles and shafts, and are sometimes used as guides.
