IKO’s MX series now includes protection against contaminants.
IKO International has enhanced its standard MX series of linear roller bearings to include features for environments that are sensitive to metal chips, dust, and other contaminants. For example, the line includes a dust protective C-Wiper that can be mounted to the outside of the end seal, ensuring operation in environments where metal chips are spattering. The MX specification also integrates IKO’s proprietary C-Lube lubrication system. As the cylindrical rollers circulate, lubricant is distributed to the loading area through the rollers along the track rail. Lubrication is properly maintained in the loading area for over 12,500 miles, the company says. In addition, the MX models utilize rows of cylindrical rollers that provide load capacities up to 674 kN for dynamic loads and 1,300 kN for static loads. Mounting dimensions are compatible with MH and LWH ball type series.
