Linear ball bearings
Linear ball bushings are used to allow a mechanical component to move along a line with precision and stability. They are primarily used in applications such as CNC, machine tools and robots, where high accuracy and reliability are essential. Linear ball bearings consist of a cylinder in which steel balls (or ball bearings) are arranged in a circular pattern. The steel balls are held in place by plastic, metal or ceramic cages, which are connected to the shaft by a seal. Linear ball bushings are made to operate in high-speed, high-torque applications, and are typically made of stainless steel, alloy steel, bronze or brass.
