The Thomson stainless steel ‘A’ Ball Bushing bearing has been introduced by Danaher. The all-steel construction offers rust and corrosion resistance and provides system rigidity in the most challenging environments, including vacuum, ozone and mild radiation, in temperatures up to 315C (600F). The bearings deliver steady state travel speeds up to 3 m/sec (10 ft/sec) and accelerations to 150 m/s2 (450 ft/s2), without the use of derating factors. They are available in 1/4-in., 3/8-in., 1/2-in., 5/8-in., 3/4-in. and 1-in. sizes with adjustable, closed and open configurations. Bearing life is lengthened, and combining the bearing with Thomson stainless steel 60 Case shafting also extends the shaft life.
