Miniature Bearings Line

IKO's standard miniature bearings line is now available in rail widths from 1 mm to 25 mm with wide-bearing options as high as 42 mm. They are also available in up to four different lengths: compact, standard, long and extra-long in many sizes.

The variety of widths and bearing lengths enables designers to easily tailor a miniature bearing system to specific payload requirements. "IKO's largest miniature linear bearings with the larger bearing lengths is designed to handle much higher dynamic and moment loads than expected from a miniature unit," said the spokesperson. The largest miniature models, for example, have dynamic load ratings in excess of 16,600 N (LWLG25) and moment load ratings over 320 Nm (MLFG42) in the roll axis.

To ensure its miniature bearings keep running smoothly, IKO has integrated its C-Lube long-term lubrication system into many units, which offers a controlled release of lubricant over 20,000 km of operation. C-Lube technology can be integrated into bearings as small as 3 mm wide.

IKO's miniature bearings have other options to increase design flexibility, including:

  • Interchangeable components, even with light preload
  • Corrosion resistant coatings
  • Ceramic balls
  • Stainless steel or carbon steel rails
  • Stainless steel end plates for applications with thermal extremes
  • Bottom-mounted, threaded mounting hole rails.
