Motion Control – CERAMICSPEED Bearing Units Are FDA Compliant!

Motion Control – Ceramic Radial Bearings are FDA Compliant

E. Longmeadow, MA – LM76 is continuing to expand its FDA compliant radial and linear bearing product lines. CERAMICSPEED Bearing Units are the latest additions. Bearings used in the food and beverage industry have to be reliable, easily cleaned, and require only minimal maintenance. CERAMICSPEED Bearing Units featuring FDA-approved Si3N4 (Silicon Nitride) balls have extremely long service life as Si3N4 balls are 2 times harder than steel balls and 4 times smoother.

motion control - linear motion products

This means, CERAMICSPEED Bearing Units handle higher loads with less friction, resulting in longer life of the balls and the race. Balls made from Silicon Nitride do not change their shape under load and are not subject to spalling which can contaminate the foods or beverages being processed. They are also very tolerant of temperature extremes (-30OC to 100OC) and thermal shock.

Linear Motion – The above twin Linear slide system was designed for a large manufacturer of semiconductors. The vapors from a plating operation were so corrosive that linear components were failing within months of installation. LM76 designed a motion control system which was predominately stainless while some components were nickel plated.  LM76’s polymatrix, ball screw nut was a major improvement over a competitor’s system which employed a standard re-circulating ball nut.
