Surface Mount Ball Bearing Assemblies - New
Surface Mount Ball Bearing Assemblies are a low cost alternative ball bearing component assembly and offer you another option in your die build procedure. These assemblies are available in 32 mm, 38 mm, 50 mm and 60 mm diameters, with lengths ranging from 100 mm to 350 mm, depending on diameter.
See the Surface Mount Ball Bearing Assemblies catalogue for specifications, product selection, and operating data.
Standard Ball-Bearing Components
A complete line of ball-bearing components in both imperial and metric sizes is available. Stock bushing and retainer sizes are available to accommodate pins of up to 3 inch diameter and 20 inches in length. Lamina ball-bearing retainers are made from a heat treated aluminum alloy that combines lightness and strength. Ball-bearings are placed in retainers in an off-line radial pattern that offers optimum life in high or low speed presses.
Lamina has over 750 ball-bearing components to choose from in inch and metric sizes. The Ball-Bearing Products catalogue includes ball-bearing retainers, straight sleeve bushings, demountable shoulder bushings, straight guide posts, and demountable guide posts.

LamGlide™ Bushings - New
The LamGlide™ bushing is a premium bushing designed for the most demanding applications. Its unique patented liner provides superior wear resistance over bronze and steel. The LamGlide™ bushing is maintenance free and operates burr and wear filing free. It can be used anywhere linear or vertical motion is required.
LamGlide™ Bushings have outstanding physical, mechanical and chemical properties that include self-aligning, dimensional stability, is tolerant to edge loading, chemical resistance, and lightweight material.
Stress Test Comparison
LamGlide™ vs other bushings
Description: Various bushing makes were field tested on the same Lift Mechanism within a Progressive Die. Operators did not lubricate the bushings.
|Bushing Types||Field Test Life Cycle
NO LUBRICATION after installation
|Hardened Steel Drill Bushing||* failure after 10,000-20,000 cycles|
|Bronze Self-Lubricating Bushing||* failure after 50,000-60,000 cycles|
|LamGlide™|| greater than 1.8 million cycles
(no failure yet)
*Note - with regular lubrication maintenance, life of bushing is significantly increased.
Conclusion: LamGlide™ Bushings are ideal for high production environments where operators do not lubricate the bushings at regular intervals or where lubricant contamination, debris or byproducts are undesirable.
