Bishop-Wisecarver Corporation® announced the launch of its latest addition to the MadeWell product line: The Radial Wheel, a single-row deep-groove ball bearing designed for applications with specified radial loading conditions.
The new wheel makes it less costly to achieve effortless, reliable motion in environments exposed to debris — like those with sawdust or grit, where traditional linear bearings fail. Because their purpose is so tailored to specified radial loading conditions, the linear bearings are simple to install. They make it possible to convey heavy loads without additional capabilities unnecessary to the application requirements.
The 90-degree vee-groove bearings work well in finished products like sliding wall panels, motorized doors and windows, heavy duty drawers and commercial or high-end furniture.
The new wheels come in carbon steel or stainless steel and in three primary sizes with outside diameters ranging from 0.774 to 1.803 inches. All sizes can travel at speeds up to 5.5 meters a second. The custom designed ball bearing was made for use with the 90-degree running surface of our vee edge track, a linear bearing raceway with polished running surfaces.
