About Mounted Linear Bearings
Mounted linear bearings stabilize and support rotating shafts. Some linear bearings are closed on one side, meaning they support the end of the shaft, and others are open on both sides, meaning the shaft runs completely through them and they support the middle of the shaft. Rotating shafts can become misaligned due to machine vibration and movement, and open mounted linear bearings solve the torsional misalignment problem. There are three types of mounts: standard, pillow block and flange. Also, see our complete line of linear bearings and guides and ball bearings.
