The high speed, short stroke, and the dust & debris of a mattress stitching machine proved too much for linear ball bearings! The contamination and short stroke length did not allow the bearing to circulate and caused premature failure.
E. Longmeadow, MA – — LM76′s solution to problem was to replace the linear ball bearings with the ceramic coated “Black Racer Ceramic Linear Bearings” linear bearings. These linear bearings have a Coefficient of Friction of just .04 (lubricated). LM76 offers 5 of the the 6 Lowest Coefficient-of-Friction bearings and bearing systems available. Follow the links below and contact LM76 for help in selecting the best bearing or bearing system for your application.
