IKO International has expanded its line of CFKR series of Double Hex Hole Cam Followers. The outside diameter of the outer ring is now available in 22 and 26 mm, with current models as high as 90 mm.

These bearings are designed for outer ring rotation and have superior rotational performance with a small coefficient of friction and high load capacity. Consider the CFKR 90 model, which features a dynamic load rating in excess of 45,000 N, compared to 40,500 N for similar cam followers on the market.

IKO International now offers two different long-term lubrication technologies for cam followers: a self-lubricating solution for the cam follower itself, as well as an external mechanism that lubricates the bearing surfaces against the rail.

IKO’s line of C-Lube cam followers include a thermoset solid lubricant prepacked into the bearing space for long lasting, maintenance-free operation. Stud diameters are available from 5 to 20 mm.

IKO International's CRBF mounting hole type, crossed roller bearings are now available in shaft diameters from 10mm all the way up to 115mm.

Space-saving design. These specialized bearings feature a space-saving design, with rollers alternately crossed at right angles between inseparable inner and outer rings. Because the rollers make inline contact with the raceway surfaces, elastic deformation under load is minimal. Bearings can simultaneously accommodate loads from all directions, including radial, axial and moment loads.

IKO's C-Lube Linear Way ML/MLF is a ball style, rolling guide for use in linear motion applications requiring smooth travel and maintenance-free operation.

The C-Lube lubricating element features a unique capillary system consisting of a porous resin sleeve and steel backing, formed by sintering fine resin powder and impregnating a large oil supply into its open pores. As the steel balls circulate within the slide unit, lubricant is continuously distributed to the balls and then the track rail as the bearing travels.

IKO has launched the C-Lube Unit to reduce cam follower maintenance time and costs, which represents a significant expense over the lifetime of the bearing in a typical plant environment.

Unlike anything available in the industry today, IKO's C-Lube Unit contains a solid lubricant which is automatically distributed onto the cam follower's outer ring and then onto the mating track surface to provide abrasion protection and increase corrosion resistance. This negates the need for periodic oil supplying, which can be labor intensive, especially across multiple cam followers.
