Linear Bearings, Shafting, Guides, Rails, Cams and Wheels
QBC offers many linear motion components which can be purchased online. Our frelon® lined bearings can carry 4 to 8 times the load of ball bearings. New line of stainless steel precision shafting features 164" x 45° chamfer at both ends. Guide blocks made of AISI 1055 steel, concentric and eccentric type guide wheels as well as new needle bearing cam followers are available for purchase in this section.
Linear motion is the most basic of all motion. Linear ball bearings provide linear movement in one direction.
A roller bearing, carries a load by placing rolling balls or rollers between two bearing rings called races. These bearings are comprised of an outer ring and several rows of balls retained by cages. Roller bearings are manufactured in two styles: ball slides and roller slides.
Ball bearing slides are the most common type of linear slide. They use self-lubricated ball bearings housed in the base. This arrangement offers smooth precise movement along a single-axis linear design. Typically constructed from aluminum, hardened cold rolled steel or galvanized steel, ball bearing slides consist of two linear rows of ball bearings contained by four rods located on opposite sides of the base, which support the carriage for smooth linear movement. This low-friction linear movement can be powered by a drive mechanism, by hand, or inertia. Ball bearing slides have a lower load capacity compared to other linear slides, this is because the balls are less resistant to wear and abrasions. Ball bearing slide applications include fragile instrumentation, robotics, cabinetry and appliances.
