IKO International now offers two different long-term lubrication technologies for cam followers: a self-lubricating solution for the cam follower itself, as well as an external mechanism that lubricates the bearing surfaces against the rail. IKO’s line of C-Lube cam followers include a thermoset solid lubricant pre-packed into the bearing space for long lasting, maintenance-free operation. Stud diameters are available from 5 to 20 mm.
The company also offers separate, hood-like units that may be attached to metric cam followers. These supply high-quality lubricating oil to the outside diameter of the cam follower outer ring and track surface, enabling uninterrupted smooth motion on track surfaces for several years. IKO offers a broad selection of cam followers that meet the diverse needs of applications including machine tools, industrial robots, electronic parts production and office automation equipment.
