The Engineering Edge – High Speed Linear Motion – Sleeve Style Linear Bearings

Motion Control – Sleeve Type Linear Bearings LM76 has two standard options for sleeve-style linear bearings when replacing linear ball bearings. Same format, dramatically different results.

The Engineering Edge – Application – Whisper Slides for Harvesting Honey

Sometimes, an application leads you to an immediate, off-the-shelf solution – like this one. Harvesting bee honey is a seasonal opportunity and these systems are hauled across the country to make it happen. They need to be all weather, tough and maintenance-free. The next time you take some honey and put it in your tea, […]

The Engineering Edge – History of Ceramic Bearings.

For 42 years LM76 has been offering innovative solutions to problems! THE SOUL OF A NEW IDEA In 1976, Warren Hamilton, The General Manager of J.C. Tarbell Associates,  an internationally recognized designer of plain (sleeve) bearings was asked by a customer to solve a linear ball bearing failure. At the time, Warren and his team […]

The Engineering Edge – Application – ETX Pillow Blocks!

Motion Control – Application ETX Pillow/Block Bearings for Radioactive Environments This was a troublesome application. This system is completely submerged in radioactive water at a nuclear power plant. So no Teflon, no seals, no lubrication – nothing that will degrade in a radioactive environment. The majority of components are stainless steel – except for our […]

The Engineering Edge – What’s the Difference?

Motion Control – Linear Bearings Compared E. Longmeadow, MA – LM76’s high speed, “Black Racer,” ceramic coated linear bearings out perform linear ball bushing and linear polymer bearings in high speed and high acceleration/deceleration applications. These drop in replacement linear bearings are designed to be used in standard open and closed pillow blocks. “Black Racer” […]
