igus introduces two new hybrid roller bearings for easy adjustment in lateral positioning systems

Published on: 15/04/2020

31st March, 2020 Linear systems are extensively used to move doors, monitors or even panels laterally, or side-to-side. If a low driving force is required, especially for manual adjustments, rollers are often used in the bearing element to reduce friction. However, to absorb the lateral forces, the position of these rollers is crucial. As a […]
