LEE Linear plain bearings provided an effective alternative to the failing ball bearings. Our plain bearings, complete with Frelon® liners, produce a microscopic transfer of thin film, creating a smooth interaction between the bearing and shaft. This condition of Frelon riding on Frelon illustrates our bearing’s self-lubricating feature. These Simplicity linear bearings are also engineered to wipe particles from shafts, so no seals are required. As a result, frequent seizing between the bearing and shaft was eliminated.
LEE Linear results equals high customer ROI
The solution of implementing Simplicity plain bearings within this harsh bottling environment garnered a very positive customer reaction. The ability to run the bearings without lubrication, offer protection for the shafting, and extend a longer life within their washdown areas continues to provide this bottling manufacturer with an improved alternative to ball bearings. The bottom line is a reduction in overall cost associated with bearings from LEE Linear.
