The rotating drum of a centrifuge for blood samples should be stored simply and inexpensively. Only low loads occur. Small installation space and high speeds are further basic conditions of the application.
Franke slim bearings are ideally suited for applications with small installation space and medium loads. They are quick and easy to fit, even in series production. Franke slim bearings of type LSA are 50% cheaper than conventional slim bearings. Even with the LSA slim bearing, the 4-point principle for absorbing equally high forces from all directions is retained due to the special grinding of the races.
