Combined roller bearings for heavy-duty linear guidance

Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Robert Stephenson both made their fame and fortune using two rails and four wheels - and Euro-Bearings aims to help customers make their fame and fortune too.

Euro-Bearings says its combined roller bearings and mating steel profiles is just as simple a concept as that of the railways Stephenson and Brunel built. The company says that customers can make money (and possibly achieve fame and fortune) by applying their imagination to this fundamental mechanical arrangement of two rails and four combined roller bearings, which can and does solve many heavy-duty linear guidance problems in diverse industries and environments.

One advantage the combined roller bearing has over other wheels is the inclusion of the axial roller that runs on the web of the C- or H-section steel rail and provides a positive resistance to crabbing movement, which is the bane of many linear systems.

The system can be used both vertically and horizontally and will accept cantilevered loads; it also telescopes elegantly and copes easily with harsh environments.

Euro-Bearings' small but very experienced team can assist customers with developing ideas that use this versatile product. The team loves a challenge!
