CAM RUNNER(TM) idler-rollers are for applications unsuitable for metallic cam followers. The composite tread and bearing unit, sized for direct replacement of conventional cam followers, includes a threaded steel mounting stud. There are no internal rolling elements, no need for lubrication, and no seals to contain lubrication. The internal design eliminates the possibility of product or process contamination from lost lubricant, and with no needles, operating noise is reduced.
Most machine design engineers will survey existing component manufacturers for standard linear guide products, limiting what they can do with their designs. Using extruded aluminum profile guides can customize machine designs while shrinking the bill of materials.
Practically all electronic devices today contain metals that may
be coming from conflict-ravaged African countries. And political pressures will increasingly influence how these minerals are sourced and used in products.
