Mounted Miniature Ball Bearings

Introducing to industry a range of mounted miniature ball bearings

Mounted Miniature Ball BearingsThese bearings are designed for use in efficient and cost-effective applications in a variety of instruments and mechanisms. They are especially suited for the medical, pharmaceutical, scientific and other precision-oriented fields as they eliminate any need for designing, manufacturing or assembling precision mounts. To mount – simply screw the pillow blocks in place.

Up until now there has been a void in the marketplace for precision mounted miniature ball bearings with existing mounted ball bearings typically available only in shaft diameters no smaller than 12mm. But now the new Spyraflo mounted, miniature ball bearings meet the increasing demands by design engineers for an economical and precision bearing mounting method for smaller shaft sizes. This important development relieves engineers of having to design and produce specific mounting configurations for miniature ball bearings.

High Quality Aluminum Pillow Block
The new Spyraflo product consists of high-quality stainless steel ABEC 3 precision Japanese made ball bearings mounted in a precision-machined, sintered aluminium pillow block housing. Initially they are being offered as non-aligning types as primarily because they are designed for use in more precise applications. These miniature ball bearings will be offered in both inch and metric sizes from 4mm to 10mm shaft diameters, double shielded bearings that are pre-greased for life. The aluminium body and stainless steel, together with the double shield give the new bearings a level of corrosion resistance that makes them the ideal choice for food and wash down applications as well.

Major Engineering Advantage
In the past when considering the use of miniature bearings for an assembly, one of the critical design elements was precisely how the bearings could be mounted. Typically the mount had to be precision machined particularly when using high-performance miniature bearings. Until now no mounted bearing option existed so manufacturers and assemblers were required to produce some form of precision mount. These innovative new Spyraflo bearings eliminate this task effectively and economically. The design criteria of these new mounted, miniature ball bearings mean the assembly process could not be simpler, just purchase the bearings and screw the pillow blocks in place.
