Isotech now offers a new standard in linear motion with TOPBALL High Performance Slide Bushing. The TOPBALL Linear Side Bushing is a high performance bushing with three times the load capacity, capable of providing up to 27 times normal travel life of a conventional slide bushing.
Increased Load Capacity
Isotech’s uniquely designed ground load plate provides circular arch contact to the ball element resulting in a greater dispersion of the load, enabling TOPBALL to provide three times the load capacity of conventional slide bushings.
Longer Travel Life
Dispersed stress on the load plate provides TOPBALL up to 27 times the travel life of conventional slide bushings.
Self Aligning Capability
Load plates are thinner at the ends to provide a pivot point at the center of the plate. The center acts as a fulcrum to compensate for any slight misalignment between the shaft and the housing bore that might be caused by inaccurate machining, mounting errors or shaft deflection.
Floating Integral Wiper Seal
Isotech’s unique floating seal design allows for self-alignment while maintaining equal and constant contact to the shaft. Seals do not add to the overall length of the bushing allowing for more compact designs.
TOPBALL load plates are designed to “float” in the outer sleeve which allows for clearance between the ball elements and shaft to best suit application requirements
