Precision Polyurethane Coated Cam Followers/Track Rollers
Meridian Laboratory ML6 polyurethane coated cam followers (otherwise referred to as track rollers) feature a threaded stud to fit directly into a component or secure with a nut for through-hole mounting. All Meridian Laboratory ML6 polyurethane coated cam followers are high quality, American-made, sealed needle bearings, complete with lubrication ports in the ends of the shaft for maximum longevity.
They feature a flat rolling surface that is quiet and precise, and provides better traction and abrasion resistance than nylon or other types of covered rollers. The bond between Meridian Laboratory’s ML6 polyurethane and the cam follower is stronger than the polyurethane material itself – guaranteeing excellent longevity!
ML6 polyurethane coated cam followers & track rollers are available in a variety of sizes, colors, and durometers to meet any of your most demanding requirements. Yoke rollers, featuring a thru-bore rather than a threaded shaft are available in the same sizes as our studded cam followers. Click here to shop online.
Why Precision Matters
While it’s easy to think “it’s just a roller”, it’s even easier to lose sight of how much you ask of your rollers and wheels, day in and day out. Keeping your operations running with a minimum of downtime for machine repairs, feed jams, tuning of encoder wheels, or other time wasters (and money costers) means upgrading to superior components for your application. If you expect, and demand that your equipment do more, ML6 offers a proven upgrade you’ll notice immediately.
In this short video above, discover one (of many) reasons a more durable, precision roller can have a huge impact on your manufacturing environment.
