Factors To Consider When Choosing A Crossed Roller Bearing
NB Corp 

Crossed Roller Bearing Slide Way Secrets Unlocked. This white paper unveils the design features that have made crossed roller bearings popular in high precision applications that require very smooth motions and that don’t require lengthy stroke travels. It quantifies their broader contact surface resulting from their line of contact versus a ball bearing’s point contact and reveals the mechanism that eliminates any slippage of the retainer holding the crossed rollers.
White Paper: Demystifying Ball Spline Specs
NB Corp 

How To Choose The Right Ball Spline For An Application. In this white paper, you’ll learn how the ball spline bushing’s load capacity (including moment load) can be increased by manipulating any of these factors: Four relate to the area of ball contact, i.e., the number of grooves in the shaft, the shape of the grooves, the length of the nut and of its raceways and how close the tolerances are. Five and six are shaft rigidity and mounting systems.
