Linear Bearing Assembly Speeds Assembly, Reduces Costs


Hartford Technologies’ custom modular bearing assemblies combine precision ball or roller bearings with plastic or steel retainers to speed installation and reduce handling and installation costs. Available in a variety of sizes and materials, assemblies can be designed for most linear sliding application including seat tracks and draw slides. In seat track assemblies, it is important for the balls or rollers to maintain adequate spacing to insure proper load distribution. Early designs relied on the use of several individual spacers combined with several balls or rollers. This made the assembly process time consuming and inconsistent. Since the retainer carries no loads, the use of lightweight, inexpensive materials such as plastics are ideal for these applications. Incorporating multiple balls or rollers into a single retainer produces more consistent quality and significant savings in installation time. All Hartford Technologies modular bearing assemblies are custom designed utilizing extensive experience of rolling elements and materials, taking the customer’s requirements from concept through production producing a no-compromise fit in their application.
