Linear ball bearings LBC

Linear ball bearings LBC
SKF linear ball bearings LBC consist of cages, raceway segments and raceway carriers to guide and recirculate the balls and either seals or shields (fig. 1). Long raceways and their osculation allow heavy to very heavy loads (fig. 2). SKF linear ball bearings in series 3 designed according to ISO 10285 are available in closed design to act with shafts, that are supported by shaft blocks. (fig. 3) For heavy duty loads linear ball bearings in open design act with supported shafts. They can be mounted in closed as well as adjustable housings and are available for shaft diameters from 5 to 80 mm (fig. 4).
