Miniature Instrument Ball Bushing Bearings
Accuracy level and compact size make the Miniature Instrument bearing ideal for small mechanisms or devices that require high repeatability and responsiveness. When replacing high friction plain bearings, Instrument bearings consistantly low coefficient of friction eliminates stick-slip and provides smooth linear performance. Each Instrument bearing can be provided with a matched 60 Case LinearRace shafting for minimum fit-up, optimizing system performance and accuracy.
