I would like to formally invite you to an upcoming webinar that I am leading focused on comparing recirculating ball and plain bearing design. No cost involved, register at Globalspec events before June 8th, 2011.

This presentation is part of a full day motion control conference and virtual tradeshow put on by Globalspec that runs from 10:30AM-5:30PM (CST). The event kicks off with the virtual tradeshow that lasts for the duration with informative webinars going on all day. See the details for Jon Schroeder’s linear bearing focus below:

Title: A Comparison of Recirculating Ball and Plain Bearing DesignSimplicity linear bearing
Presenter: Jon Schroeder, Business Development Manager, PBC Linear
When: 12:30PM-1:30PM (CST)

Summary: Have you ever needed to design something that required linear motion? Have you been overwhelmed by the available options? Have you seen the term "PV" value and wondered what that means and why it's important? Have you ever questioned why ball based systems have clear formulas that can be used to calculate lifetime, but plain bearings do not? If you answer "YES" to any of these questions, this presentation is right for you. Attendees will review the basics of ball and plain bearings, and learn how to choose between the two. The discussion will also focus on expected bearing lifetime.

Key Take-Aways:

  • Review the two main types of linear bearings: ball and plain
  • Learn how to choose between the two options
  • Understand dynamic load vs PV value
  • Discover why lifetime calculations are not practical with plain bearings
