Rotary Options

In numerous precision movement applications, the linear motion bearing can be found. These products are able to provide smooth linear motion for the objects in which they are used for. When it comes to deciding the perfect linear bearing, rotary bearings can be the right choice. A linear rotary bearing is able to combine multiple linear bearing technologies to provide the smooth and low friction movement on a straight line. Typically, they are found in manufacturing, medical, construction and agricultural industries. Their applications can include drills, die cutters, engines, industrial robots, automobile assembly lines, dental tools, printing equipment and a vast array of other uses. Continue reading

A Frictionless Ride

Movement oriented mechanisms must be able to accomplish a number of things while moving an object from one point to another, even if this movement is restricted to a few feet or even a few inches, like roller bearings are. The most important characteristic though, is to cause as little friction as possible to build up between the object moving and the moving mechanism, because friction causes heat which causes damage to either or both of the objects in question. That is why the boast of roller bearings, that they cause no friction at all, makes them a very popular moving mechanism in a wide variety of applications. Continue reading

The Advantages of Plastic Linear Bearings

The type of material chosen for a product of any kind is a big decision, which is a concept that can be applied in industrial, commercial and residential settings. For example, when I am buying a dress for myself, I know not to be metallic looking fabric because I sweat right through it and it is very static-like. Cottons are always the best bet for me. In commercial and industrial settings, choosing product materials is even more important because it is not just an individual’s comfort level that is at stake. When discussing the type of material for a linear bearing, such as plastic versus a variety of metals, much must be taken into consideration. Continue reading

How to Roll with Linear Roller Bearings

Linear roller bearings do exactly what it sounds like they do. They “bear” the weight of an object while it “rolls” along the “linear” path set out for it. It is a simple concept that works in a practical way and requires very little maintenance or expense, which is why such a simple concept is still so popular in our technologically advanced society. You don’t mess with something that is cheap as well as working well, even if advances in other areas are being made. Rolling with the linear roller bearings is smart financially and practically, for a number of industries. Continue reading

The Cylindrical Needle Bearings

Most linear bearings are shaped in the way their name suggests; linearly. However, the needle bearings are circular, shaped like a wide metallic doughnut whose edges are filled with rotating rollers to aid in the movement of whatever they are attached to. They reduce the friction of the rotating components between which they are placed, such as parts of the transmission in an automotive vehicle. This enables all parts involved in the motion process to last longer and run more smoothly, cutting down on maintenance costs for the owner of the vehicle or machine. Continue reading

Linear Roller Bearings of the Past and Present

When items are constantly being moved back and forth, eventually they are going to begin to show signs of wear and tear. No matter what the material – whether it is wood or metal or plastic – and no matter where it is, this is going to happen with almost all products. But, there is a way to prevent such an outcome from occurring. This method, is to invest in a linear roller bearing. Linear roller bearings are motion components that have been designed to provide objects with precision, low friction movement. They assist in moving loads of various sizes along a linear surface through using rotating roller bearings.
