To get the best performance and service from your cam followers, you want to protect it from wear. In fact, metal-on-metal wear is a significant source of maintenance and downtime in cam-driven machines. And in heavy-duty applications like machine tools and industrial robots, deflection, thrust loads and dirty environments can make wear prevention especially challenging.
Machine tool manufacturers are always looking to push the envelope in order to produce high-quality parts. Not only do CNC machine tools need to hit production targets, they are also producing increasingly sophisticated parts. Designers must choose robust motion components that meet these needs and operate reliably in harsh conditions.
When you need your cam follower to operate reliably over a long lifetime, lubrication and sealing are critical. In harsh […]
In many machine building applications, engineers face limitations in how they can integrate cam followers into their design–an issue that […]
Metal-on-metal wear is one of the main causes of maintenance and downtime in cam-driven machines. Unless you want to deal […]
