Simplicity Bearing Proves More Economical than Competition

December 30, 2015 - Rockford, IL  -  Posted by PBC News

Simplicity Bearing with Shaft

The Simplicity® bearing from PBC Linear® is designed to withstand most industrial environments—extreme temperatures, washdown, fine particulate contaminants, vibration, and more. The design features that enable this kind of versatility are ones that also contribute to the longevity of a Simplicity bearing’s life.

When the Simplicity bearing is directly compared to a bearing such as the igus® DryLin® R® bearing, the Simplicity bearing is projected to last up to three times longer—this not only avoids the cost of three bearing replacements, but also eliminates the possibility of bearing-related downtime and lost production costs. This, among other things, helps keep PBC Linear’s overall bearing replacement costs 25% LOWER than a situation utilizing igus bearings.
