Guide Rod Bearings

Guide Rod Bearings

GREAT FOR LINEAR MOTION

Guide Rod bearingPolyLube® Composite Guide Rod Bearings are designed as straightforward replacements for traditional metallic materials. Replacement is typically driven from one or a combination of several of the following factors:

REASONS TO DESIGN WITH POLYLUBE® GUIDE ROD BEARINGS

  • Improved stick-slip properties

  • Optimal frictional response during cycling

  • Significant reduction in shaft scoring

  • Extension in the bearing life

  • Reduction in bearing profile

  • Greatly improved side load/misalignment capacity

  • Increase in load capacity of bearing

  • Enhanced corrosion resistance

  • Tolerance of more cost effective shaft finishes

  • Lower in weight

  • Eliminates galvanic reactions

PolyLube Guide Rod Bearings are commonly available in two formats: a PolyLube bearing utilizing a glass liner or a PolyLube bearing utilizing a PTFE fabric liner. The most common PolyLube guide rod bearing in use today is the glass liner due to two primary performance enhancements over the PTFE fabric lined bearing: the frictional response under start-up conditions and the transfer of PTFE to the wear surface.
