October 17, 2018 - Rockford, IL  -  Posted by Dave Humblet

Redi Rail is a versatile product and can be mounted to utilize either the radial load capacity or the axial load capacity.

Roller Bearings in Linear Motion

September 07, 2018 - Rockford, IL  -  Posted by PBC News

Linear motion applications are often found to have not only radial loads but also axial load requirements. For these applications, single or double row angular contact bearings are often used. Single row bearings offer the advantage of a slimmer profile and double row bearings offer the advantage of longer life and higher radial, axial and moment loads capability.
