Machine builders will benefit from extended service intervals and longer bearing life, increased machine reliability, and reduced service and support costs, says the vendor. The bearings feature a patented multiple track design said to deliver up to twice the load carrying capacity, or 8 times the operating life, of conventional linear bearings. When combined with Thomson stainless steel 60 Case shafting, the shaft life is also extended beyond that of conventional shafting. Thomson Stainless Steel MultiTrac Ball Bushing bearings deliver steady state travel speeds up to 10ft/s (3m/s) and accelerations to 450ft/s2 (150m/s2), without the use of derating factors. The bearings are available in 8mm, 12mm, 16mm, 20mm, 25mm, and 30mm sizes as standard, with adjustable, closed and open configurations.
