Franke slim bearings of type LSA deliver a convincingly smooth run, require extremely compact mounting space, ensure simple assembly and come at a favorable price.
Slim bearings type LSA consist of one inner and one outer race ring with hardened and profiled raceway and a plastic cage with retained balls. The rolling elements touch the race rings at two points each, hence ensuring the 4-point system. The race rings are separated; their diameter can therefore be altered elastically for mounting.
The slim bearing determines the overall construction's load bearing capacity. Hence the mating construction can be made of alternative materials such as steel, aluminium or plastic. Axial and radial accuracy (see diagram below) are defined to a substantial extent by the mating components. These properties can be enhanced by boosting the accuracy of manufacture.
