Cam followers (stud-type track rollers) are designed to run on all types of tracks and to be used in cam drives, conveyor systems, etc. They are based on either needle or cylindrical roller bearings.
Instead of an inner ring, they have a threaded solid stud (pin). They are supplyed ready-to-mount and they are available in several designs and variants:
– With or without a cage
– With different stud designs:
A concentric seat
An eccentric collar
– With several sealing solutions
– With the outer ring running surface profile:
Crowned as standard
In contrast to ball and roller bearings, where the bearing size refers to the bore diameter d, for cam followers the size refers to their outside diameter D.
More robust than typical deep groove ball bearings, they are highly customizable with the possible combination of many different components. This results in up to 10 000 possible configurations! Find the optimum configuration to deliver the kind of high performance you need – whether that’s exceptional durability, for example, or lower friction.
Designed especially for wind turbine generators, SKF Quiet Running deep groove ball bearings significantly reduce noise levels and structural resonance. They are less sensitive to variable operating conditions, can increase bearing service life and extend relubrication intervals.
