Linear Bearing Applications

Linear Bearing Applications

Linear bearings are used in both small and large scale applications. You’ll find them in large industrial automation equipment to move tooling, or in microscopes for precise movements. We’ve even incorporated linear bearings in much of our custom automation equipment.

Linear Bearings in the Medical Industry

Linear Bearings in Medical IndustryCommon places you’ll find bearings in the medical industry include: surgical and dental tools, diagnostic and laboratory equipment, and pumps. In this field, bearings need to meet certain requirements such as high speeds, low noise, service life and resistance to harsh environments, aggressive chemicals or fluids. They need to be able to handle frequent cleaning as well as provide a smooth, quiet operation.

Linear Bearings in the Food & Beverage Industry

Linear Bearings in Food and Beverage IndustryLinear bearings in the Food & Beverage industry need to be tough enough to handle harsh environments and constant wash-downs while also conforming to health and sanitation standards. Common bearing applications in this industry include: processing equipment, mixers, blenders, ice machinery, and weighing machinery.

Linear Bearings in Robotics

Linear Bearings in RoboticsRobotics is a fairly new industry, yet linear bearings have proven to be quite useful within robotics. You’ll find linear bearings mostly in cartesian robots (also known as gantry robots) which operate on the X, Y, and Z axes. Important bearing features in this industry include: smooth operation, service life, and load capacity.

Linear bearings are used anywhere there’s a need for linear motion, the tricky part is deciding which type is the best fit. Below, we cover a few different decisions that can arise when shopping for linear bearings and rail guides.
