IKO currently offers some of the smallest commercially available miniature bearings, with sizes as small as 1 mm. To handle more robust applications, the company offers standard and wide rail options to its C-Lube Linear Way ML line, suited for single-row track rail uses.
ML standard models span a range of 1 to 25 mm wide track rails, with wide-track rail models as high as 42 mm (MLF models). Miniature series carriages are available in four different lengths: compact, standard, long and extra-long.
Because of these additions, IKO’s ML miniature bearings can perform under higher loads. Consider the MLF42 model, which boasts a dynamic load rating in excess of 9,000 N and a moment load rating over 320 N•m (MLFG42) in the roll axis.
The ML line also features built-in lubrication, IKO’s proprietary C-Lube technology, which allows for long-term maintenance-free operation. C-Lube units start at 3 mm. IKO’s ML miniature linear bearings achieve precise linear motion across a range of industries, from semiconductor manufacturing to packaging, and in medical, surgical, life science and robotics applications.
