Bearing Supports

Featured Product from Rockford Ball Screw

Every screw assembly functionally requires a means of supporting the rotational axis of the screw and absorbing the radial and axial force components, e.g.

  • Bearing support utilizing rolling element bearings
  • Sleeve and rolling element bearing combination
  • Static screw mounted into a structure with a rotating nut


It is recommended that only axial force vectors are transmitted directly into the axis of the ball screw to obtain optimal and, in some instances, functional performance & longevity. All of our bearing mounts are furnished sealed and greased from the factory.
