The C-Flex Bearing Solution: Not a new concept but growing in popularity as a preference for motion control

C-Flex bearings are based upon proven design concepts used for years in a wide variety of applications. The growing popularity of the C-Flex bearing is not only due to the quality of the product but it’s adaptation in today’s GREEN TECHNOLOGY efforts. Our design utilizes crossed springs made to exacting tolerances of high-strength corrosion resistant steel, capsuled in a cylindrical housing, to provide angular travel up to +/- 30°, without the use of lubricants. These bearings provide unmatched performance characteristics for life, accuracy and resistance to detrimental environmental conditions. Again, they require NO Lubrication, can function at limited angular travel for an indefinite number of cycles, are frictionless, and have extremely low hysteresis. Problems related to common ball and rolled bearings in limited angle oscillating applications such as lubrication migration and brinelling are eliminated. Starting and running torque variations due to thermal and lubrication variations do not exist. Contamination of sensitive electronic or optical systems due to the escape or out-gassing of lubrication through bearing seals is no longer a concern.
