Thomson (Wood Dale, IL) Super Smart Ball Bushing® Linear bearings, already available in U.S. Inch and European Metric models, are now available in Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) sizes. This advanced bearing technology provides up to six times the load capacity or 216 times the travel life of conventional linear bearings, according to the company. Super Smart Ball Bushing bearings have coefficients of friction as low as 0.001 for ultra-smooth operation and deliver reliable performance at steady state speeds up to 3 m/s and acceleration up to 150 m/s2. Double lip integral wipers keep contaminants out and lubrication in, further maximizing bearing life.
