Line of Bearings for Robotic Applications



Emerson Bearing Boston has expanded its line of thin section bearings to include: Barden, FAG, IGUS, IKO, INA, GMN, DURBAL, Nachi, NTN, RBC and Torrington brands.

Used in a range of applications, from medical automation and robotics to high tech, thin section bearings have a compact, lightweight design. They are suitable for various robotic applications including human assist, pick and place, semiconductor and medical. Since they are often used when space limitations or specific design configurations prevent the use of conventional bearings, thin section bearings allow for versatility in many applications and come in a range of contact angle designs, including radial contact, angular contact and four-point contact.

"Unlike radial ball bearings, thin section bearings' cross diameter remains the same regardless of bore size, and as such reduces system costs and streamlines overall design," said a company spokesperson. "High-tech applications often require custom bearings with special materials, surface coatings or lubricants in order to meet specialized machine needs. Thin section bearings can effectively meet these types of application requirements, including very low or uniform torque, high positioning accuracy, corrosion resistance and compatibility with very clean environments."

"Thin section bearings allow for significant space savings and overall system weight reduction - ideal advantages when designing sophisticated and critical-application products," explained Steve Katz, President of Emerson Bearing. "Emerson Bearing is able to provide the appropriate bearings in addition to customization services as needed."
