Smith Bearing Stainless Steel Cam Followers!!

In extreme applications where bearings are being subjected to high-temperature or corrosive environments, alternative materials or special platings must be considered.  Smith Bearing manufactures needle roller bearings in a wide variety of high-temperature and corrosive resistant exotic alloys including 440-C Stainless Steel.

Corrosion resistant plating is effective when using bearings in corrosive environments.  Non-bearing surfaces such as inner races and end washers are cadmium plated to resist corrosion. The outer races of the bearings are typically hard-chrome plated to resist wear as well as corrosion.

Metal Industry Solutions!!

Problem with Needle Bearing cam followers experiencing premature failure from axial loads and contamination?  We have the solution for you!  SMITH-TRAX idler-roller bearings with tapered roller or deep groove ball bearings are designed to handle both heavy radial loads and thrust loads that needle-bearing cam followers cannot.  Because the internal bearing rolling elements do not grind together like needle rollers, they do not skew and fail at high speeds.

Maintenance-free (yes that is right, we said MAINTENANCE-FREE) SMITH-TRAX Bearings are lubed for LIFE, with special seals to keep out sand, moisture, and other heavy-industry contamination.  SMITH-TRAX Bearings are manufactured in study styles for fast installation and in yoke styles for maximum load capacity.  Produced in inch and metric sizes, there are four different configurations (Plain, Flanged, V-Groove, and U-Groove) to satisfy a wide range of applications.  SMITH-TRAX Bearings are value-priced and interchangeable with other major idler-rollers to meet your cost-containment objectives.

Precision Manufactured Smith Rails drastically reduce system design time and sourcing cost of guidance systems for material handling equipment supported by heavy-duty SMITH-TRAX rollers.

July’s Product of the Month!

Our product of the month is our VYR SMITH-TRAX roller! It is a V-Groove Yoke Style bearing.  The SMITH-TRAX Series bearings are designed and manufactured to handle increased axial and radial loads by using Tapered Roller Bearings or Deep Groove Ball Bearings.  These bearings should be used when standard needle roller bearings are not sufficient to handle the thrust load found in certain applications.  We also care this product in Metric sizes and Stud style!
