NB Corporation's Stroke Bush
Product Announcement from NB Corporation of America
While the NB stroke bush has a limited rectilinear traveling stroke, it works with minimal wear resistance and enables smooth linear/rotary complex motion. It can therefore be used with a variety of devices.
The NB stroke bush is designed to allow the ball bearings to rotate smoothly. The finely ground outer case contains a retainer which forms a staggered arrangement of the steel balls in machined holes on its inner surface. Each ball in the retainer may rotate smoothly in its individual hole while the outer case moves in a rotary and/or rectilinear reciprocating motion.
