When it comes to automated manufacturing, choosing the best Linear motion products to streamline operations is pivotal. As free-rolling bearings crafted from aluminum, roller pillow blocks from Lee Linear® are designed to improve production efficiency. Read on to learn why these innovative, cost-effective devices are superior to conventional linear ball bearing pillow blocks.
4 Reasons Lee Linear Rolling Pillow Blocks Are Top Motion Control Products
1. Smooth & Superior Speed
Roller pillow blocks are designed to keep friction to a minimum, allowing elements to revolve more than twice as fast as standard linear systems. Despite accelerating production speeds, these high value bearings deliver smooth operation that minimizes disruptive vibrations and noise. They also accept heavier load capacities and transition over long shafts where transition joints are necessary.
2. High Dynamic Load Capacity
Compared to standard recirculating ball technology, roller pillow blocks offer a significantly higher bearing life. Specifically, they carry dynamic load ratings of up to 12,500 pounds—eight times higher than traditional recirculating ball devices. Roller pillow blocks can be used with shaft diameters between 0.5 and 3 inches, allowing them to operate under pressure at impressive lengths.
3. Adaptable Design
Replacing traditional pillow blocks with roller pillow blocks is incredibly easy, as these devices are sized to be interchangeable and re-buildable, (contact Lee Linear for a rebuild kit). anufacturers find that the adaptable design of roller pillow blocks increases bearing life and results in lower installation costs.
Roller pillow blocks are designed to reduce interruptions and failures in manufacturing operations. For example, these bearings are not impeded by industrial particles and can be arranged to reduce transition shock. With no plastic parts, roller pillow blocks will not melt under high heat. Scrapers, lubrication ports, and other self-maintaining accessories can also be configured within the system to conserve peak performance.
