Original Press Release:

PROBLEM SOLVER for Side Loads Sideline Assembly, Steel and Foundry Lines

Garwood, N.J., - When needle bearing cam followers experience premature failure from axial loads and contamination, look to Accurate Bushing Co., a leading manufacturer of high-precision needle roller bearings, to help you solve this problem.

SMITH-TRAX® idler-roller bearings with tapered roller or deep-groove ball bearings are designed to handle both heavy radial loads and thrust loads that needle-bearing cam followers can't. And because the internal bearing rolling elements don't grind together like needle rollers, they don't skew and fail at high speeds.

Maintenance-free SMITH-TRAX® Bearings are lubed for life, with special seals to keep out sand, moisture and other heavy-industry contamination. A metal expansion plug closes off the back end of the bearing and forms a large lubrication reservoir. This makes them the ideal solution in applications where lubrication is difficult or non-existent.

SMITH-TRAX® Bearings are manufactured in stud styles for fast installation and in yoke styles for maximum load capacity. Produced in inch and metric sizes, there are four different configurations (Plain, Flanged, V-Grooved, U-Grooved) to satisfy a wide range of applications. SMITH-TRAX® Bearings are value-priced and interchangeable with other major idler-rollers to meet your cost-containment objectives.
