QualityWhat Are Linear Bearings?
Linear bearings, also known as linear slides bearings, are different from typical bearings that facilitate circular motion. Linear slide bearings are designed to facilitate movement in a straight line and consist of two main components: a movable part and a guide rail. Linear roller bearings or linear ball bearings are commonly used and loaded onto a track that supports a surface, such as a table, enabling it to move back and forth.
ProfessionalSelect & Types of Linear Bearings?
We offers the world’s largest selection of state-of-the-art linear bearings. Choose from several families of inch or metric linear bearings and accessories to meet your specific design needs, including our Super Smart Ball Bushings, which offer load capacities up to 7760 lb. When used with RoundRail linear guides, the inherent self-aligning-in-all-directions design of these linear bearings allows for ultra-smooth travel when mounted to wider-toleranced prepared surfaces. When used with shafting, our linear bearings last up to 50% longer than conventional bearings.
PerfectionHow Do Linear Bearings Work?
The bearing is at the heart of all rotating equipment, and the condition of the bearing often reflects how well a machine is running. Sometimes, however, bearings fail. In these cases, what’s the first thing you should do? Learn more about bearing damage and bearing failure – and how to prevent it.
