Bearing Type
           
   Your choices are...         
   Air       Air bearings are a very low friction bearing that rides on a cushion of air. 
   Flat Ball Cage       Flat ball cage linear bearings are non-recirculating or recirculating bearing design where the balls are trapped in a frame that spaces them at equal distance. These balls ride on a rail and are usually lubricated. 
   Bushing, Ball       Bushing, ball bearings are similar to a bushing in construction but have rows of balls to reduce friction and increase stiffness, accuracy, and smoothness. The bushing may be of open or closed construction. Open bushings ride on continuously or intermittently supported round shafts, while closed bushings ride on end supported shafts. Several different types and options are available including recirculating ball, non-recirculating ball, linear only motion, rotary / linear motion, self-aligning, and adjustable preload. 
   Needle Roller Cage       Caged needle bearings are low friction, high load bearings in a composite cage. A common industry designation for these is M/V or N/O type linear bearings. 
   Cam Follower       A cam follower is a wheel on an axle and that wheel runs on bearings. Cam followers offer high speed, rigid operation, and a long working life. 
   Crossed Roller
Crossed Roller Rail SetsCourtesy of Del-Tron Precision, Inc.
 
     Roller and cross roller bearings are used on linear ways where straightness and accuracy are critical. The trade off is in loading capability. 
   Guide Wheel       A low cost, versatile, and rugged alternative to traditional linear bearings. They can be used on linear or circular rails or guides. 
   Hydrostatic / Hydrodynamic       A linear hydrostatic bearing works much like an air bearing. The bearing body rides on a thin film of oil or water that provides for near frictionless movement. 
   Plain / Journal
Sleeveless BushingCourtesy of Berg W.M., Inc.
 
     Journal bearings consist of a split cylindrical shell of hard, strong metal held in a rigid support and an inner cylindrical part of soft metal, which holds a rotating shaft. The primary shaft support is the lubricating fluid, usually oil. 
   Linear Motion Guide       Linear motion guides are linear profiled rails that have a set of mating bearings that travel along the rail. 
   Flat Roller Cage       Flat roller cage bearings are similar to crossed roller bearings except that the axes to all of the rollers are parallel instead of crossed. They consist of a flat cage of rollers with the axes all in line with each other. They can be used in a set of rails with a precision v-guide or between two flat surfaces. 
   Linear Roller       Linear roller bearings are a set of circulating roller bearings that ride on a round or flat guide. These bearings have extremely heavy load capacities. 
   Spline Bushing / Ball Spline       A spline bushing is a linear bearing with contact grooves that match those in a mating shaft.  Bushing can be of plain bearing or ball spline design.  A ball spline bearing has balls that contact grooves in a matching spline shaft on at least four sides, depending on the number of splines. The balls recirculate as the bearing moves along the guide. 
   Other / Proprietary       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary linear bearings. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Bearing / Rail Assembly?       A complete assembly comprised of the bearing and guide or rail. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.

Special Bearing Materials
           
   Your choices are...         
   Bronze       Bronze is an alloy of primarily copper and a small amount of tin. 
   Ceramic       A bearing made of ceramic material and provides very smooth operation. 
   Graphite       Graphite is a soft, slippery, carbon based material that acts like a lubricant. 
   Plastic       Any of a number of thermoset or thermoplastic polymers that have a high molecular weight. 
   Stainless       A particular alloy made of chromium and other metals that are resistant to corrosion and rust. 
   Other / Custom       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary bearing materials. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Special Material Features       
   Your choices are...         
   Corrosion Resistant       Corrosion resistant bearings are made with corrosion resistant material or coatings. 
   Self Lubricating       In self lubricated bearings, the guide shaft can rotate in the bearing instead of moving axially. 
   Rotary Motion       The bearing has the capability for rotary motion as well as linear motion. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Bearing Specifications
   Bearing Width:       Bearing width is the overall width of a rectangular or square bearing. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Bearing Length:       Bearing length is the dimension of the bearing along the direction of travel. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Inside Diameter (Round only)       The inside distance of a round bearing across the rail. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Dynamic Load Capacity:       Dynamic load capacity is the axial and radial static forces multiplied by dynamic factors combine to form the equivalent dynamic bearing load. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Bearing Housing
           
   Your choices are...         
   Flanged       The flange on the bearing housing may come in a variety of styles. The most common flange types are round and square. 
   None / Open       A bearing support technique where there is virtually no enclosure around the bearings. 
   Rectangular       A rectangular housing refers to the overall shape of the housing that mates with the guide. It will contain the bearing type that rides on the guide. 
   Pillow Block       Pillow block housing is a type of housing where open or closed style linear bearings or bushings are fit inside. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized or, proprietary bearing housings. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Open / Closed (If applicable)       
   Your choices are...         
   Open       Open bearing design is where the bushing body surrounds most but not the entire shaft it runs on. The open portion allows it to pass over shaft supports, allowing for a fully supported shaft. 
   Closed       Closed bearing design is where the bushing body surrounds the entire shaft it runs on.  Closed bearings can only be used with end-supported shafts. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
