FRANTZ built its bearing reputation on the quality and performance of its Commercial grade Unground Non-Precision conveyor bearing assemblies for conveyor rollers.
Providing quality engineered conveyor bearing options for our customers is a FRANTZ value. The FRANTZ chamfered bearings are another example of FRANTZ providing the optimal product for the proper application. Chamfered Bearings
In specialty applications where the bearing or roller location does not remain stationary, the chamfered inner race feature designed into the bearings are often used to eliminate the roller from interfering with the mating rail or other structural component. The chamfered inner race allows for a lower profile mount under the rails or cover plates, eliminating obstruction when employing vertical movement or lift.
A specific and common application for the chamfered bearings is one used in the floor of semi-trailer trucks which transport goods on pallets. These trucks are commonly fitted with short, stubby rollers which pneumatically or mechanically raise from the trailer floor to allow the pallet to easily glide over the floor. Once the pallets are loaded, the rollers are returned below floor level allowing the cargo to remain stable during transportation. For the same reasons, another application is found with rollers used in the floors of aircraft designed for cargo transport.
If you have an application where a chamfered bearing may help, please contact FRANTZ Customer Service. FRANTZ prides itself on consultative working relationships with our customers to help solve customer problems, enabling FRANTZ to deliver value, rather than just sell product.
