NEW Integral Bushing and Stud Shaft DualVee® Wheels
August 1, 2005 - Pittsburg, CA - Bishop-Wisecarver Corporation announced today the introduction of the DualVee® Integral Bushing (BWI) and Stud Shaft (SWI) wheels. The patent pending design of the BWI and SWI wheels features a one-piece design where the wheel bearing inner raceway is ground into the wheel bushing or wheel stud shaft. The advantages of the one-piece design compared to the conventional two-piece guide wheels (wheels with separate bushing or journals) include:
o Lower profile and increased rigidity resulting in up to 84% less deflection
o Larger diameter fasteners resulting in up to 25% greater torque (holding) capability
o Less tolerance stack-up
o External adjustment and tightening
o Lower procurement and installation costs
The SWI and BWI DualVee wheels are available in carbon steel, stainless steel, and polymer over-moulded stainless steel construction.
