This Dynaroll miniature precision motion control pulley is made of brass and is mounted to a double-shielded ball bearing made of 400-series hardened martensitic stainless steel. This miniature precision motion control pulley with a deep-groove ball bearing is designed for use with elastomer O-ring belts in applications requiring low torque, smooth operation, and low noise. The bearing has deep inner and outer races that conform to the balls that run in them, allowing higher speeds and creating lower friction than bearings with comparable-sized roller bearings, and the pulley has a single groove on the outer raceway’s surface that keeps the belt in place, preventing the belt from wearing down by rubbing against the sides of the pulley. The bearing has a metal shield on either side that is fastened to the outside ring and extends over the rolling elements. The shields assist in keeping out contaminants such as dirt and grime and also help to hold in lubricant applied during manufacturing. The inner and outer rings and balls are made of 400-series martensitic stainless steel hardened to a minimum of C58 on the Rockwell hardness scale, providing better resistance to corrosion and high temperatures than American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) 52100 chrome steel, and higher hardness and wear resistance than plain stainless steel. This bearing has a stainless-steel cage to prevent the balls from coming into contact with each other during use, reducing friction, vibration, and noise. It can be used to a maximum operating temperature of 121 degrees C/250 degrees F. The ball bearing has a CN (normal) radial internal clearance designation, making it suitable for applications where the load and speeds do not result in thermal expansion. This clearance provides latitude for self-realignment and compensates for static and dynamic alignment errors. Manufactured to tight dimensional tolerances, this precision bearing is useful in applications that require high accuracy, high rotational speeds, and increased operating efficiency. This ball bearing pulley meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 and 13485:2003, Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS) 18001:2007, Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Critical standards for quality assurance. It is for use in commercial and industrial applications including small appliances, drive systems, vending machines, toys, and small motors.
Rolling bearings use rolling elements to maintain the separation between moving parts to reduce rotational friction and support radial and axial loads. These elements can be one of the following types: ball, cylindrical, spherical, barrel, needle, spindle, or tapered. All rolling bearings are open, shielded, or sealed. Sealed bearings are lubricated with oil or grease in the bearing factory, while open and shielded bearings are meant to be lubricated in place, with periodic reapplication of lubrication, based on use. The shield protects the working parts of the bearing from environmental debris that may be introduced and could reduce the ball bearing speed and lifespan. Rolling bearings are used in a range of applications from agricultural machinery to conveying equipment, robotics, dental equipment, elevators, rolling mills, ship rudder shafts, and aggregate crushers, among others.
