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 also offers separate, hood-like units that may be attached to metric cam followers. These supply high-quality lubricating oil to the outside diameter of the cam follower outer ring and track surface, enabling uninterrupted smooth motion on track surfaces for several years.
IKO offers a broad selection of cam followers that meet the diverse needs of applications including machine tools, industrial robots, electronic parts production and office automation equipment. To learn more, visit www.ikont.com/rotary-bearings/cam-followers.
IKO is a world leader in needle roller bearings and linear motion rolling guides and was the first Company in Japan to initiate technical developments on the needle roller bearing. Compared with traditional ball bearings and other roller bearings, the needle roller bearing is small in size and light, but offers a very high load capacity. Needle roller bearings help to make the overall equipment more compact, thus saving money and resources. IKO has also developed a range of linear motion rolling guide units for applications that require extremely high levels of precision, such as semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
