Thomson Super Smart Ball Bushing® Bearings
Thomson Super Smart Ball Bushing® bearings represent a major advancement in linear bearing technology worldwide. These patented and universally self-aligning bearings last up to 50% longer than the competition when used with Thomson 60 Case® shafting. This leads to significant reductions in machine downtime, number of teardowns and lifetime bearing costs. Super Smart bearings also provide six times the load capacity and 216 times the travel life of conventional linear bearings.
To minimize installation time and cost, Super Smart Ball Bushing bearings can be ordered factory installed in an industry standard single or twin pillow block. They assure forgiveness to misalignment of housing bores and shaft deflection, uniform ball loading over the entire length of the bearing plate and optimal distribution of load between ball tracks.
