Cam Followers

What is a cam follower?

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.

Types of Cam Followers

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.

Key Benefits of Cam Followers

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

  • Low coefficient of friction.
  • Excellent rotation performance is specially designed for outer ring revolution.
  • High load capacity design—the radial clearance is smaller than ordinary needle roller bearings, which reduces impact load and prolongs service life.
  • Easy connection with hex socket or screwdriver slot.
  • Available in a variety of shapes and styles to suit a variety of applications. Followers are available in cage or full complement designs, shielded or sealed versions, and spherical or cylindrical outer rings.
  • Size, material and design options abound; from miniature and standard models to eccentric models and models with thrust discs. The stainless steel version is corrosion resistant and suitable for clean room applications.

Why Choose AUB Bearings?

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.
