Wire Race Bearings product consultant

One principle. An endless variety of designs

Our product consultant provides you with a wealth of useful information on the engineering, economic efficiency and practically limitless configuration options of our Wire Race Bearings, which is bound to help you with your decisions.

Size

Which diameters should the Wire Race Bearings possess?

You can select any diameter of Franke Wire Race Bearings between 60 and 2000mm. Individual modifications are always possible.

Mounting position

Which mounting position is planned?

Bearings are exposed to a variety of forces, depending on the mounting position. Franke Wire Race Bearings come with a special arrangement of race rings, which means they can accommodate axial and radial forces equally. The variable arrangement of the race rings and modifications of the race ring radius help compensate even substantial torque forces.

Load

Which maximum loads is the Wire Race Bearing exposed to?

Besides compact design, Franke Wire Race Bearings come with the benefits of high load rating load and bearing capacity from all directions. In this, the performance of Franke Wire Race Bearings is largely independent of the mating material. After all, the race rings of the Wire Race Bearing carry the main load, while the mating structure itself is not exposed to any direct stress. The race radius and rolling elements are matched to suit the prevailing load.

Mating structure

How would you like to purchase your Wire Race Bearings?

Franke Wire Race Bearings are delivered either separately as bearing elements (only race rings, rolling elements, cage) or together with the mating structure as ready-to-use bearing assemblies. We offer individually tailored solutions in addition to the standard program. The size of the Wire Race Bearings is infinitely and individually adjustable. You have a free selection of mating structure to suit your precise requirements.

Material for the mating structure

Do you have special requirements in terms of the material?

You have free selection of the material used in the mating structure. After all, Franke Wire Race Bearings deliver the requisite stiffness and accuracy of the bearing in almost any mating structure. They carry the principal load. Ambient conditions such as moisture or magnetic fields can be compensated, depending on the material used. For instance, compared with standard steel bearings, housing components made of aluminium can reduce the weight by up to 65%.

Ambient conditions

In which ambient conditions will the Wire Race Bearing be used?

Franke Wire Race Bearings can be used in practically any environment. The inner elasticity of the open race rings makes Franke Wire Race Bearings insensitive to ambient conditions.

Operating temperature

Up to which maximum temperature will the Wire Race Bearing be used?

Franke Wire Race Bearings can also be used at extraordinary operating temperatures, thanks to the use of special materials.

Our recommendation for you

LEL

LEL Bearing elements type LEL are ideal for your requirements. Hardened and CNC-ground raceway, also geometric alignment of balls and raceway radius, make the type LEL predestined for applications involving strict specifications in terms of running properties and precision. The open race rings possess compensating properties in the event of temperature fluctuation and load peaks.

You are welcome to send your data to our technical consultants. They would be happy to prepare an unbinding offer.

LER

LER Bearing elements type LER are ideal for your requirements. They are characterized by smooth running, possess high dynamism and require just compact mounting space. Their right-angled connecting surface ensures simple processing of the mating structure and also a high stiffness. The open race rings possess compensating properties in the event of temperature fluctuation and load peaks.

LSA

LSA Slim bearings type LSA are ideal for your requirements. Besides a smooth run, an extremely compact mounting space and easy assembly, type LSA comes at an extremely favorable price. The race rings of the slim bearing are separated; their diameter can therefore be altered elastically for mounting. They are available in infinitely variable diameters, unlike standard slim bearings.
