Buy Cam Followers from Richmond Wheel & Castor Co
Whatever industry you are in, whether packaging, food or pharmaceuticals plus many others, and whether you use agricultural machinery, cranes or other equipment, we have the cam followers to meet your needs. Our use of ball bearings rather than needle roller bearings means our heavy duty cam followers differ from conventional and lower quality bearings since all of the loading is concentrated at a single point rather than being distributed around the diameter or the bearing. As a result, they work effectively, can handle very heavy loads and are able to withstand intermittent and extreme shocks without danger of fracture.
Common Usage of Cam Followers
Although most people aren’t familiar with cam followers, these devices are present in many common pieces of equipment such as washing machines, dish washers and in cars, where the camshaft is a well known term. For industrial use, cam followers are commonly used in automation equipment, machine tools and material handling equipment amongst others.
Since the purpose of a cam is to convert rotary motion (around an axis) into linear motion (in a straight line), a cam follower is needed to make the transfer between the two types. It can also be employed in reverse to convert linear motion to rotary motion.
Typical Features of Cam Followers
In order to convert the motion as required, the cam follower needs to make a contact with the cam. Additionally, due to the wide variety of applications in which they’re used and the different types and sizes of machines, our cam followers come in an extensive range to suit every need.
Features of our cam followers include:
- a thick walled outer ring that allows high radial and axial loads and at the same time reduces bending stresses and distortion
- a crowned outer ring running surface that is helpful in applications where edge stresses need to be kept to a minimum or where outer ring tilting may occur relative to the track; this may result from incorrect mounting and aids in producing a long service life
- easy mounting on machine components using a hexagonal nut or a threaded solid stud
- multiple styles and sizes that include spherical or cylindrical outer rings, shield or sealed versions to prevent penetration by unwanted particles and cage or full complement design.
The Best Cam Followers for every Application
Our cam followers have excellent rotational performance, a low co-efficient of friction and are designed and manufactured for a long life even with high impact loads. We have different sizes, design options and materials to cater for all sorts of applications. These include stainless steel versions that are suitable for use in clean rooms due to their resistance to corrosion.
All are designed for efficient use, simple attachment and significant flexibility for a variety of applications that include office automation, industrial robotics and machine tools. Whatever equipment you have, if you need to convert rotary to linear motion, Richmond Wheel and Castor Co have a cam follower to meet your needs. If you’re unsure of the particular type you require, we’re here to help and can give all the advice you need.
