Anti friction wire race bearings from Franke GmbH offer solutions for all bearing requirements for any application. New generation machines are not only smaller but also high performance type and hence require bearings with little cross sections, small mounting space and flexible design. These bearings are of simple construction with steel balls embedded in a special thermal expansion plastic cage and 4 wires supported at 4 corners for smooth ball movement. The company provides design solutions for any type of axial and radial load applications. The main features of these bearings are silent running, selection of bearing materials as per customer choice (steel, aluminum, plastic, etc). Franke slim bearings and bearing elements are significantly lighter than conventional anti friction bearings but they present the same load capacity and are thus suited to precision applications with require low own weight. Circumferential speeds of up to 25 m/s are possible with these bearings. Franke produces angular ball bearings for particularly dynamical applications. The diameters of the ground raceways of the race rings are optimally adapted to the ball diameters and to the load applied. Advantages: light and compact; small cross section – small mounting space; easy integration in the mating structure; circumferential speed up to 25 m/s; free choice of materials; sustaining capacity for loads from all directions by carrying angle 45°; and choice of different race ring profiles.
