Housed Bearing Assemblies
Lutco’s housed bearing assemblies provide a substantial cost and weight savings over a traditional cast iron unit.
These assemblies consist of a pressed metal housing and either a Lutco semi-precision bearing or a precision bearing can be requested.
Because the housings are less rigid than cast iron housings they are also less susceptible to fracture.
Housed Bearing Assembly Styles
Ball bearings assembled into pressed metal stampings. Various configurations with and without self-alignment feature are available.
Self Aligning Flushmount
Flushmount assemblies, as their name implies, are fastened flush to the mounting surface. These self aligning units are designed with spherical OD bearings which mate with the spherical inside surfaces of the flange housings.
Economical flange mounted bearing assembly. These units consist of a cylindrical OD bearing pressed into a stamped steel housing. Economounts are fastened flush to the mounting surface.
Economical flange mounted bearing assembly. Similar to the economount except a flat plate is welded to the back of the assembly for added rigidity. Flushmount assemblies, as their name implies, are fastened flush to the mounting surface.
Axial space constraints can often be overcome with Lutco centerflange assemblies. These units are designed with the flange positioned at the center of the bearing width. Centerflanges consist of a Lutco semi-precision bearing seated between two welded flangettes.
Lutco’s economical 2-bolt rubber mount design incorporates a rubber grommet which reduces noise and vibration and allows for alignment while the pressed steel flange assures rigid bearing support.
