Lower Drive Force and Friction with Hybrid Linear Bearings

March 7, 2017

Many engineers want to use self-lubricating plastic linear bearings, but are challenged with manual applications and heavy loads, or struggle with drive force configuration.

In this tech talk, learn how hybrid linear bearings can help improve application challenges by:

  • Reducing bearing friction

  • Reducing required drive force

  • Allowing a system to function without conforming to the 2:1 rule
