IKO Cam Followers are bearings with a stud that incorporates needle rollers in a thick walled outer ring. These bearings are designed for outer ring rotation and provide superior rotational performance, a low coefficient of friction and high load capacity. In order to effectively increase the loading zone, this bearing is designed to have a smaller radial clearance than general needle roller bearings, so the shock load is lessened and stable long life can be obtained. Since the studs already have threads or steps, they are easy to mount. Cam followers are follower bearings for cam mechanisms and linear motion and have high rigidity and high accuracy. They are used mostly for machine tools, industrial robots, electronic devices, and OA equipment. Stainless steel cam followers have superior corrosion resistance and are suitable for use in cleanrooms and environments where oil cannot be used or where water might splash.
