The outer ring of the Standard Type Crossed Roller Bearings is made of two split pieces, which are bolted together to prevent separation during transportation or mounting, enabling easy handling. These bearings are widely used in the rotating parts of industrial robots, machine tools, medical equipment, etc., which require compactness, high rigidity and high rotational accuracy. In addition, bearings made of stainless steel and those with inner and outer rings provided with mounting holes are also available on request.
Crossed Roller Bearings are compact bearings with their rollers alternately crossed at right angles to each other between inner and outer rings. The orthogonal array of rollers allows the bearing to handle complex loads simultaneously from any direction, which makes assembly possible without needing to worry about load direction.
The orthogonal array of rollers reduces the cross sectional area of rear-mounted 45° contact angle roller bearings or single row ball bearings by half. This compact design allows you to more effectively utilize space in your application.
Crossed roller bearings provide more accuracy, rigidity, and weight-bearing capacity for linear motion than other commonly used friction-reducing devices such as ball bearings. And unlike ball bearings, they can support moment loads, radial forces or tilting loads. This lets one crossed roller bearing replace more than one ball bearing, thus saving the space required by ball bearings, lowering the associated material costs.
Crossed roller bearings are preferred for high-precision linear-motion applications with relatively short linear movements that require smooth motion. They are also durable, lasting 150 million cycles, even for linear-motion applications with high levels of acceleration and deceleration when using 2 to 12-mm rollers and 30 to 600-mm lengths.
They can be found in medical and lab equipment, machine tools, semiconductor processing, clean rooms, vacuum environments, material handling, and automation machinery. And as technology becomes more demanding, requiring greater and greater precision, crossed roller bearings will also become more common.
