Cam runner

Composite tread and bearing unit, sized for direct replacement of conventional cam followers, includes a threaded stainless steel-mounting stud. But unlike conventional cam followers, there are no internal rolling elements and no need for lubrication. The internal design eliminates the possibility of product or process contamination from lost lubricant, and with a non-metallic rolling surface, operating noise is reduced.
