What are the characteristics of cross roller bearings

06-20, 2023 / in News / by PRS

Crossed roller bearings, also known as crossed roller slewing bearings or crossed roller slide bearings, are a type of roller bearing that consists of cylindrical rollers arranged in a crisscross pattern between inner and outer rings. This unique design allows them to simultaneously handle radial, axial, and moment loads with high rigidity and precision.

Characteristics of crossed roller bearings

Crisscrossed Roller Arrangement: The cylindrical rollers in crossed roller bearings are arranged in a crossed pattern at a 90-degree angle to each other. This arrangement allows for load distribution in multiple directions and provides high rigidity and stability.

Load Capacity: Crossed roller bearings have a high load-bearing capacity due to the crisscrossed roller arrangement and large contact area between the rollers and raceways. They can handle both radial and axial loads, as well as moments or tilting forces.

Rigidity and Precision: Crossed roller bearings offer excellent rigidity and positioning accuracy. The crossed roller arrangement minimizes elastic deformation, ensuring precise and repeatable positioning.

Compact Design: Crossed roller bearings have a compact design, making them suitable for applications with limited space. They have a low profile and a high stiffness-to-weight ratio, making them ideal for applications where size and weight are critical.

Low Friction and Smooth Operation: The rolling motion of the cylindrical rollers in crossed roller bearings results in low friction and smooth operation, reducing energy consumption and allowing for precise motion control.

High-Speed Capability: Crossed roller bearings can operate at high speeds due to their low friction and high rigidity. They are often used in applications that require rapid and precise motion, such as robotics, machine tools, and automation equipment.

Maintenance-Free Options: Some crossed roller bearings are available with sealed or lubrication-free designs, eliminating the need for periodic maintenance and reducing downtime.

Crossed roller bearings find applications in a wide range of industries and equipment, including robotics, machine tools, medical devices, semiconductor manufacturing, aerospace, optical systems, packaging machinery, and more. They are chosen for their ability to provide high load capacity, rigidity, precision, and compactness in demanding and precise motion control applications.
