PBC Linear’s Simplicity linear plain bearings, equipped with a Frelon liner, outfits your design with the advantage to last longer and reduce unnecessary replacement costs. By designing the bearings with no rolling elements which can cause stick-slip, the maintenance-free Simplicity bearing cannot catastrophically fail and ensures a long life—even in the most demanding environments.
The Frelon liner is bonded to the Simplicity bearing at the molecular level. Because of this feature, it requires no additional lubrication—creating a clean, green, and widely applicable linear motion solution that is great for almost any environment. The Simplicity bearing has 50% more effective surface area.
Simplicity is available in a host of linear motion components—pillow block assemblies, flange mounts, precision bushings—and is available in standard inch, as well as ISO and Japanese metric sizes. Simplicity bearings can be integrated into almost any application to improve performance, extend life and save on cost.
