These flange-mount bearings contain a linear sleeve bearing with a flange mounting plate that can be fastened to a surface to support the shaft as it moves under load. Linear sleeve bearings perform better in dirty or corrosive environments and can handle higher loads than linear ball bearings.
Since the bearing is not mounted in a housing, flange-mount bearings have a lower profile than base-mount bearings. The shaft passes through the bearing at a right angle to the surface, making these bearings suitable for vertical setups.
The square-shaped flange on these units has a mounting hole in each of the four corners to align with matching mounting holes on the equipment surface. The multiple connection points secure the unit and help to support the shaft.
