Special Functions

  • Balls undergo slight elastic deformation when parts are loaded on. Hence parts will not be damaged while being inspected or produced.
  • Detection of lobes and superimposed lobes made easy.
  • Easy readjustment of balls which provide new bearing points.
  • Handles diameters up to 15 inches.
  • Increased contact area due to special geometric spacing of balls in blocks.
  • 8 contact points per pair of blocks share load distribution.
  • Balls are self-aligning and hard wearing.
  • 1 each precision spacer per block provides 2 different angles per pair.
  • Simply turn each block 90° and inspect component using both angles.
  • Special inspection set ups using cylinder squares now possible.

    IMPORTANT NOTE:  BALLS ARE FIXED IN BLOCKS AND ARE NOT DESIGNED TO ROTATE IN USE.
