To get the best performance and service from your cam followers, you want to protect it from wear. In fact, metal-on-metal wear is a significant source of maintenance and downtime in cam-driven machines. And in heavy-duty applications like machine tools and industrial robots, deflection, thrust loads and dirty environments can make wear prevention especially challenging.
Machine tool manufacturers are always looking to push the envelope in order to produce high-quality parts. Not only do CNC machine tools need to hit production targets, they are also producing increasingly sophisticated parts. Designers must choose robust motion components that meet these needs and operate reliably in harsh conditions.
