Cam followers are specialized bearings that follow the profile of a cam lobe to transfer motion and loads between machine components. They are known for their durability and reliability in highly stressed environments where conventional bearings can fail.
Cam followers are available in various types such as bolt type, yoke type, crown type, cylindrical type and needle type. Bolt-on cam followers have a bolt-on outer ring, making them easy to install and remove. Yoke Cam Followers have a yoke for extra strength and stability. Crowned cam followers compensate for misalignment, while cylindrical followers are designed for heavy loads and high speeds. Needle cam followers reduce friction and handle heavier loads. The choice of cam follower depends on the specific application requirements.
AUB designs and manufactures a wide range of cam followers to suit a variety of applications including machine tools, industrial robotics, electronic parts production and office automation equipment. A cam follower is a bearing that incorporates needle rollers between a stud and a thick outer ring. the
AUB Bearing's Cam Followers and Rollers provide an antifriction solution that converts rotary motion to linear motion or supports purely radial or combined thrust loads, depending on the type of rolling element used. In addition to providing interchange data with manufacturers like McGill on this page, we also offer many more interchange tables with other leading brands such as IKO, INA, RBC, Smith, and McMaster.
AUB Bearing offers a wide range of cam followers designed and manufactured to meet the specific requirements of machine tools, industrial robots, electronic parts production, office automation equipment and even harsh environments requiring increased corrosion resistance. Stainless Steel Cam Followers are ideal for applications such as outdoor use or food production facilities that require frequent washdown and cleaning.
