There are two
basic types of linear bearing, one with a plain element and another with a rolling
element. They both serve the same general function but differ in their design
and in the performance they produce. They each consist of mechanical components
that allows relative motion between one surface supporting another while
minimising friction created between the two.
There are many
high quality linear bearing products for a wide variety of applications
available through linear bearings suppliers. Yorkshire-based YB Components keep
local stocks from the best linear bearing manufacturers so they are ready to
ship fast and free all over the UK and the rest of the world.
even be completed on the same day of ordering for businesses needing linear
bearings in Yorkshire areas such as Leeds, Castleford, Bradford, Wakefield,
Pontefract and Knottingley.
Here are some of
the linear bearings suppliers YB Components can deliver:
PMI/AMT Linear Bearings
the PMI Group, AMT linear bearings include the popular MSA Series which feature
trains of balls designed with a special contact angle of 45 degrees. This angle
enables bearings to handle equal loads in radial, reversed radial or lateral
directions, and allows their products to be applied in any installation
The MSA Series of
AMT linear bearings are high
precision bearings thanks to a well balanced pre-load that lets the machine operator
increase the rigidity in four different directions without increasing
The PMI Group
employs a proprietary method for distributing the lubricant used with AMT
linear bearings to ensure an even distribution during each circulation loop.
Sferax Linear Bearings
linear bearing products are designed to reduce friction to allow heavy loads to
be moved longitudinally with minimum effort, making their linear ball bearings exceptionally
lubrication such as lithium-based grease is recommended for high speed
applications, although the thickness of the lubrication should be determined by
how much speed is being used in the application. The slower the speed, the
thicker it can be.
Standard Sferax linear bearings come
with either a Polyamid ball tray or a solid brass precision-milled ball tray.
These metric linear ball bearings have a rigid housing made from 100 Cr6 bearing
steel hardened to 63 HRC. The additional advantage that the Polyamid ball tray
provides is a smooth and jerk-free operation with a significant reduction in
noise, though they will not be suitable for all applications.
INA Linear Bearings
All INA linear
bearings feature individual characteristics that are best suited to different
applications according to load capacity, acceleration requirements, constant speed and stroke. Other factors
considered in the design of INA linear bearings include temperature and
vibration resistance as well as lubrication and maintenance.
If you require any AMT
linear bearings, Sferax ball bearings or any of the INA linear bearing products
then contact YB Components who are the UK’s leading linear
bearings suppliers in Yorkshire.
