Ball Bearing Guiding Systems: Inch and Metric


As the premier die components manufacturer, we offer an extensive line of catalog guide posts and bushings in both plain bearing and ball bearing styles, available for immediate delivery.

The ball bearing system includes press fit and demountable guide posts, press fit sleeve and demountable bushings as well as ball cages. The ball bearing guide posts are manufactured from hardened steel to assure free rolling of balls and high wear resistance. Each post is drilled and tapped at the bottom for mounting of the ball cage washer assembly. This unique mounting method permits the ball cage, except when under preload, to freely rotate 360° around the guide post thus eliminating scoring or tracking of the guide post surface. The ball bearings are arranged in the cage in a spiral pattern which also minimizes tracking or grooving and assures uniform wear.
