A new friction spindle bearing from INA Bearing can be used on spindles in texturing machines producing high volume textured, soft yarns and smooth synthetic threads. The bearing’s main feature is its oscillation behaviour. This is achieved by means of the elastic suspension of the upper ball bearing. A main advantage for the user is that the critical speed of around 7000rpm is much lower than the speeds for spindles driven by other methods.

The bearing has double row balls with elastic suspension and is sealed on both sides.
