The Cam Follower is a compact and highly rigid bearing with a shaft. It contains needle bearings and is used as a guide roller for cam mechanisms or linear motion.
Since its outer ring rotates while keeping direct contact with the mating surface, this product is thick-walled and designed to bear an impact load.
Inside the outer ring, needle rollers and a precision cage are incorporated. This prevents the product from skewing and achieves a superb rotation performance. And, as a result, the product is capable of easily withstanding high-speed rotation.
There are two types of the outer ring in shape: spherical and cylindrical. The spherical outer ring easily absorbs a distortion of the shaft center when the cam follower is installed and helps lighten a biased load.
