PBC Linear has combined Frelon material with precision bearing technology to create SIMPLICITY® Linear Plain Bearings. SIMPLICITY® self lubricating plain bearings can move in linear, oscillating, rotary, or any combination of motions at speeds exceeding 4 m/s (165 in/s). Designed to handle loads 20 times greater than linear ball bearings, they will not catastrophically fail.
Red anodized aluminum shell identifies the inch series, blue – the ISO metric and green – the JIS metric series, which is available in off-the-shelf industry standard sizes and interchangeable with linear ball bearings and some bronze bushings.
Closed type of linear plain bearing is ideal for handling loads in all directions, and offers a number of mounting options.
Open version of closed bearing, the opening is designed to allow use on fully supported shafting for greater system rigidity.
