Franke slim bearings

compact &tailor made

Why slim bearings from Franke?

  • Compact design, small mounting space
  • Open wire races made of steel with 2 contact points each to the balls (4-point-bearing)
  • Plastic cage with retained balls for quick and easy mounting esp. in serial production
  • Optional: Elastomer sleeves (Type LSC) for sealing as well as noise and vibration damping
  • Wind turbine (small)
  • Medical centrifuges
  • Medical ceiling lights

High Performance at minimal mounting space

Bearing elements require only a minimal mounting space and are integrated directly into the design of the rotor. The material of the mating structure therefore does not depend on the bearing and can be chosen freely. High load bearing capacity in all directions.

  • Minimal mountng space
  • 4-point-contact
  • Medium loads
  • Insensitive to deformations

High Performance and cost efficient

LSA5 280 in special version free of preload and equipped with nickel-plated race rings, non-corrosive balls. Rotational resistance <0.3 Nm for a blood sample centrifuge.

  • Minimal mountng space
  • Medium loads
  • 4-point-contact
  • Best cost/performance ratio

High Load Capacity and smallest mounting space

The direct integration of the race rings into the housing parts saves space and costs. The bearing is set free of preload and can be moved by hand with a defined resistance. The movement is smooth and uniform. The high torque forces are safely absorbed by the four-point bearing in every travel position.

  • High load capacity and precision
  • Smooth and sient running
  • 4-point-contact
  • Light and smooth rotation

A Question of Principle...

Franke Slim Bearings are the logical development of the wire race bearing technology. Due to the special profile of the raceways with two contact points on each of the rolling elements, the 4-point-contact principle is maintained.

The races are open and for serial request available in any desired diameter within 3“ and 30“. Installation and adjustment are just as easy as with conventional slim bearings with a large gain in load capacity.
