Cam Follower is a bearing having thick outer ring and a stud to which needle-type rollers are built into, and it is a bearing having small friction coefficient and excellent rotational performance designed for outer ring revolution.
With the purpose of increasing the load area effectively, this bearing is designed so that the radial gap is smaller than the general needle roller bearings. Therefore, it alleviates the impact load, and a stable long-life is gained. Since the stud undergoes screw processing and stepped processing, they can be attached easily.
Cam Followers have high rigidity and accuracy as follower bearings for the cam mechanism and straight line movement, and they are used in a broad range of fields such as machine tools, industrial robots, electronic parts machinery, and OA (Office Automation) equipment.
Cam Followers made of stainless steel excel in corrosion resistance, and they are suitable for use in places that are easily affected by oil, environment in which water is scattered as well as clean rooms.
Cam Followers come in series of abundant types such as those with cages, full complement, shield type, sealed type, spherical outer ring, cylindrical outer ring and ones with hexagon sockets.
