McGill® is an industry leader, inventing the first needle bearing cam follower in 1937. Since then the McGill® CAMROL® line of bearings has led the way in development, creating innovative solutions for the industry through fine, long-lasting products.
When it comes to cam follower applications, McGill® heavy-duty CAMROL® bearings are manufactured to help solve some of the toughest issues in the industry. When applications involve incidental thrust loads, higher speeds, contamination, or maintenance-free operation, heavy duty CAMROL® bearings can provide major increases in operational life when compared to standard cam follower bearings.
Features of Heavy-Duty Camrol® Bearings
Contamination resistant– Even a tiny amount of contamination can significantly reduce bearing life, but Camrol® bearings feature rubber lip seals needed for increased protection against harmful contaminants. The rubber lip seal is also pointed inward adding improved grease retention for smoother operation.
Long lasting– Large lubricant reservoirs help these bearings stay lubricated for maintenance-free operation. These heavy-duty CAMROL® bearings can last up to 5 times longer than their standard needle bearing cam follower counterparts in lube-for-life tests. You’ll love their superior performance.
Better thrust capability– For standard needle bearing cam followers, handling heavy radial loads is no problem. But that said, thrust loads can sometimes cause early failure. For this reason, McGill® CAMROL® bearings feature double rows of cylindrical rollers designed to help it withstand incidental thrust that can sometimes accompany cam follower operation. This double row design also allows for high speed applications, as well as a dynamic rating for extended fatigue life.
Quality and Robust Design
Designed with tough applications in mind, the heavy-duty CAMROL® bearing features:
- Zone-hardened raceways for high load ratings
- Ductile stem for strength when absorbing shocks
- Integral flange in the stud type prevents disassembly when thrust load comes into play
- Center thrust ring offers smooth surface for roller guidance and thrust load carrying when necessary
