IN BRIEF: Ball screws and linear bearings us plastic retainers

Ball screws and linear bearings developed by NSK-RHP use plastic retainers to eliminate ball-to-ball contact. This reduces bearing noise and vibration by 7dB and 10dB respectively and ensures smoother and more stable running at low speeds. The new design provides 60% greater stiffness for ball screws compared with those that use spacer balls, it is […]

Ball screws and linear bearings developed by NSK-RHP use plastic retainers to eliminate ball-to-ball contact. This reduces bearing noise and vibration by 7dB and 10dB respectively and ensures smoother and more stable running at low speeds. The new design provides 60% greater stiffness for ball screws compared with those that use spacer balls, it is claimed.
