IKO Cam Followers Address Axial Loading and Provide Maintenance-Free Operation

The CR...BSE Series of imperial cam followers offers machine designers a versatile, reliable way to convert rotary motion to linear motion.
IKO International has introduced the CR...BSE Series of imperial cam followers, offering machine designers a versatile, reliable way to convert rotary motion to linear motion. Designed to resolve the main factors that can cause bearing failure, these heavy-duty cam followers feature two IKO innovations:
-A ThrustDisk seal. This special seal slides into the outer ring’s contact areas and handles axial loads caused by misalignment. It also resists heat and contamination to improve bearing life.
-C-Lube. CR...BSE bearings are lubricated with a thermosetting solid-type lubricant which fills the inner space of the bearing. This lubricant helps provide long-term, maintenance-free operation.
The cam followers’ ability to handle thrust loads allows them to handle higher loads, while their sealing technology ensures the high performance that heavy-duty applications demand.
CR...BSE cam followers — part of IKO’s Inch Series — also offer a low coefficient of friction, good rotational performance and easy mounting. Stud diameters range from 0.19 to 0.375 inches.
