Cam followers have many benefits and we’re ready to let you in on why you should be using a cam follower as part of your bearing solution. Are you making the most of the bearings that are available to you? If you have heard of a cam follower but have never used one, today we might just change your mind. A cam follower represents a cylindrical roller that is to be attached to a machine component. This component would use a hexagonal nut. Cam follower bearings are used for a number of applications, including linear motion support, locating components during the aforementioned movements, and process transfer lines.
1. One of the pros of using a cam follower bearing is that they always distribute evenly, regardless of the configuration of the unit.
2. They are available for a wide range of linear motions.
3. Cam follower bearings are built thicker than normal bearings, meaning they can absorb more shock than normal and can reduce distortion.
4. They are highly versatile; these bearings are able to fit in whatever solution you desire, whether it’s for a soda machine, aircraft application, or a conveyor line.
