Cam Follower

Cam Follower
The cam follower is a type of bearing designed to track a cam's profile, converting the cam's rotary motion into linear motion along the cam's surface. It is a specialised type of roller or needle bearing used in various mechanical systems to convert rotary motion into linear motion or vice versa. They are widely used in applications requiring accurate and smooth motion along a predefined path.

Features and benefits:
  • High radial load-carrying capacity
  • Accommodate axial loads due to skew or tilting
  • Long service life
  • Durability and versatility

Q: What maintenance is required for cam followers?

Regular maintenance is essential to ensure cam followers' optimal performance and longevity. This includes proper lubrication, periodic inspection, and replacing worn-out components when needed.

Q: Can cam followers be used for both linear and rotary motion applications?

Yes, cam followers are versatile and can be used for both linear motion (following the cam's contour) and rotary motion (converting linear motion into rotary motion).
