Cam & Follower Bearings

Cam follower bearings, also called track followers, absorb shock and reduce friction to ensure smooth, efficient operation of conveyors, transfer lines, and other equipment involving rotary or linear motion. Due to the versatile design, you can use cam followers to position mechanical components or carry loads. 
Ondrives.US manufactures three different Cam Follower types to fit your application:  
  • Ball Bearing Cam Followers: Stainless steel bearings and Shoulder screws with bearing diameters ranging from 1/4” to 7/8 inch. These cam and followers are supplied with lock washers and nuts. They handle dynamic loads up to 356 lbs. and static loads up to 170 lbs., depending on the size selected. Ball bearings are shielded and greased to reduce friction.
  • Roller Bearing Cam Followers: Hardened steel cam follower bearings with a low profile and wide roller surface for applications with limited space. Inch or metric sizes are offered with bearing diameters ranging from 1/4” to 3/4 inch or 8mm to 18mm. Dynamic load ratings up to 3,375 lbs. and static load ratings to 2250 lbs., depending on the model.  
  • Large Diameter Ball Bearing Cam Followers: Zinc-plated carbon steel cam follower with a threaded stud for mounting on the surface of an apparatus. ABEC shielded steel ball bearings with diameters ranging from 7/8” to 2 inches.

The Ondrives.US Advantage: High-Performance Cam Follower Bearings

Ondrives.US offers standard and large diameter cam followers in a range of styles. Our stainless steel cam follower bearings offer corrosion, heat, and chemical resistance but have lower load carrying capacities due to the material properties. Carbon steel cam followers offer high load carrying capacity and feature zinc plating to provide some corrosion protection.
