On-Demand Webinar: Managing Misalignment in Linear Motion Systems
By shortening the working life of linear bearings, misalignment can be a significant cost driver for both the machine builder and owner. Machine builders suffer from higher warranty costs when bearings fail prematurely—not to mention the less tangible cost of a damaged reputation for quality. Machine owners, meanwhile, have to contend not just with the cost of buying and installing new bearings but also any downtime costs.
Rather than incur these costs once the machine has gone into service, it’s far better to deal with misalignment upfront.
