Offering 308 types of linear ball bearings, MISUMI provides, in terms of outer diameter, both standard and compact designs and, for more delicate applications, miniature ball bearings with flanges (one length, standard design). The types available include short, standard, medium, double and long lengths. Depending on the area of application, they are also available as direct variants or with standard, medium or guiding flange. In addition to the linear ball bearings, optimally designed housings in wide or long designs as well as shafts with a perfect fit are also available. Different materials can be selected according to the operating and/or ambient conditions, and the surfaces of components can be coated to provide increased protection against corrosion if desired. As well as chemical nickel plating, the company also offers low-temperature black chrome plating for many products. Featuring an integrated lubricant reservoir, the MX series, for example, offers 2.5 times the rated life of the normal linear ball bearing.
