When an international steel maker was experiencing chronic linear bearing failures, they called LM76. LM76 JET RAIL

MITTAL STEEL COMPANY EMPLOYS PLASMA TORCHES THAT THROW OFF DEBRIS, DUST AND GRIME. THESE CUTTERS SECTION LARGE STEEL SLABS. WITH 30 FEET OF TRAVEL AND A 1500 POUND CANTILEVERED LOAD, NO SIMPLE TASK! MITTAL’S PLASMA TORCHES TRAVEL ON 3″ ROUND, FULLY SUPPORTED SHAFT ASSEMBLIES COUPLED WITH STANDARD LINEAR BALL BEARING PILLOW BLOCKS – WHICH FAIL WEEKLY RESULTING IN EXPENSIVE DOWNTIME. BY CHOOSING JET RAIL BEARINGS, MITTAL WAS ABLE TO MOUNT JET RAIL ROLLER BLOCKS DIRECTLY TO THEIR EXISTING FULLY SUPPORTED SHAFT ASSEMBLIES – SAVING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS. Footnote: Instead of weekly failures, JET Rail Roller Blocks have been running for 3 months without a failure.

JET Rails are DIRECT DROP-IN REPLACEMENTS for all standard open, single and twin pillow block linear ball bearing assemblies.

Jet Rail vs. Ball Linear

Here is why linear ball bearings failed in this application: 1. Linear Ball Bearings require lubrication. Grease captured debris, dust and filings make a great lapping compound. As this “gunk” built-up on the shaft, it hardened. With each pass, the linear ball bearings rolled through this paste-like grit which eventually made its way beneath the seals. Once inside, the ball tracks were fouled, the balls stopped rolling and mechanical failure quickly followed. Working with engineering, Mike Quinn of LM76 recommended JET Rail Linear Roller Blocks. Here’s why: A. JET Rail Roller Blocks feature an open design that collects little-to-no debris. B. JET Rail employs cam followers that are sealed for life so lubrication is not required. C. Balls include debris and rollers roll over it. D. JET Rail has a scraper option which clears the way for the top loaded rollers:

E. JET Rail offers a Floating Option which comes in handy when you have long travel applications. It is difficult to accurately align shafting over 20 plus feet.

D. JET Rails have easy to install rebuild kits for easy and inexpensive field retrofit.  E. JET Rail blocks are off the shelf for rapid delivery.
