Montgomery, IL – Aurora Bearing Company introduces their new line of LCOM Spherical Bearings. Like all Aurora Bearing spherical bearings, the LCOM series features a one piece steel raceway, swaged around the ball for a smooth, precise, close tolerance fit, along with the benefit of the strength and vibration resistance of steel. In addition, this series is optionally available with Aurora‚â€™s proprietary AT series PTFE liner, for a zero clearance, self lubricating fit.
Aurora LCOM Spherical Bearings were designed to offer a higher level of performance with dimensional interchangeability for the ‚â€œLS‚â€ spherical bearing category; a market segment which has remained largely unchanged since the 1950s. ‚â€œLS‚â€ bearings are characterized by being of 3 or 4 piece construction, with an inner ball, an outer ring, and a one or two piece brass, bronze, or copper alloy race between. Since the early 1950‚â€™s users of these bearings, which are also marketed with a ‚â€œFLBG‚â€, ‚â€œRS‚â€, or ‚â€œVBC‚â€ prefix, have had to accept the low strength and poor vibration resistance of these bearings do to the low strength race material. Aurora‚â€™s LCOM bearings incorporate superior materials and manufacturing processes to overcome the performance deficiencies associated with ‚â€œLS‚â€ bearings.
