Support bearings units for roller screws

SKF offers a full range of support bearings units  to be fitted on the machined ends of the planetary and recirculating roller screws. These support bearings incorporate high performance SKF ball bearings, plus efficient sealing solutions providing a long service life to the complete roller screw assembly.

The FLRBU support bearings can also be used for ball screw applications, if the standard support bearings designed for ball screws (FLBU, PLBU and BUF types) not cover the load requirements of the application.
