E. Longmeadow, MA – — Motion Control – Application Story – When an aftermarket manufacturer of off-road steering and suspension systems needed an upper ball joint bearing, they called LM76. These systems are purchased by off-road vehicle owners who want to upgrade their OEM steering and suspension units for hard-hitting environments. Pounding, shock, sand and debris are all part of the mix when it comes to extreme off-roading and LM76 Black Racer bearings are right at home. According to company engineers, after a year of brutal testing, Black Racer met all design goals and exceeded expectations.

Linear Motion – FDA/USDA/3A-Dairy Compliant ETX Scraper Seals for Linear Bearings Used In Food Processing Applications!

Motion Control – ETX Scrapers and Seals

E. Longmeadow, MA – Motion Control Components – Linear Motion – LM76 has introduced FDA/USDA/3-A Dairy compliant, snap-in ETX Scraper Seals for linear bearings. Machined from Ertalyte® PET-P, ETX Scraper Seals have high strength, excellent wear resistance, low coefficient of friction, and excellent dimensional stability at higher temperatures than seals from other materials. Designed with a slight interference fit between bearing ID and shaft, ETX Scraper Seals prevents contaminates and debris from migrating beneath the seal as it scrapes the shaft surface.

Ertalyte® PET-P’s low frictional characteristics have little impact on drive force. These FDA/USDA/3-A Dairy compliant scraper seals are ideal for: Pharmaceutical, medical, food, and dairy processing applications.

E. Longmeadow, MA –Motion Control – LM76 has developed the most corrosion resistant linear bearing available. In space, deep under the sea, or in the harshest environments, when there can be no “Plan B,” Pegasus Series 1 Linear Ball Bearings can be counted on to perform. In some applications linear bearings will not move for days, weeks, months or even years, however, when called on to perform they must work as if they just came out of the box. LM76’s Pegasus Series 1 Linear Bearings feature Silicon Nitride (SiNi) Ceramic Balls in a shell with retainer and end caps all made from 440 Stainless Steel and then ArmorloyTM coated.

Motion Control – ZrO2 Zirconia Ceramic Radial Ball Bearings For High Loads available from LM76 are FDA/USDA/3A-Dairy Compliant!

E. Longmeadow, MA — Motion Control – LM76 has announced the release of their new line of Radial Ball Bearings featuring ZrO2 (Zirconia) Ceramic balls. To Complement LM76’s broad range of Linear Bearings that are FDA/UDSA/3A Dairy compliant, as well as linear bearings for extreme environments; they have added Deep Groove bearings which accommodate radial and axial loads, Angular Contact bearings for simultaneously handling radial and axial loads, Spherical Bearings which are self aligning, and Thrust Bearings for high axial loads. Each of the four types of metric bearings are available in a wide range sizes.

E. Longmeadow, MA –Motion Control – LM76 has introduced their RINO Series of FDA/USDA compliant Cam Follower Bearings. Available in 12 sizes these all new cam follower bearings integrate: Stainless steel studs, hybrid stainless steel/ceramic bearings, FDA approved Lubricant, and poly-crystalline non-metallic tires. Mounted on stainless steel studs, LM76’s CERAMICSPEED hybrid radial bearings incorporate a stainless steel race and low friction ceramic balls that can handle high loads, are capable of high speed operation, and have an exceptionally long service life. The tire is formed from a super wear resistant poly-crystalline compound that has no soft spots and will not deform under pressure.
