Loader Slot Bearings
Loader slot bearings are generally recommended for applications with vibratory or static loads which produce small relative motion between the ball and race. Loader slots possess excellent ball-to-race conformity, which increases resistance to damage from vibration. When wear does occur, the ball can be replaced without removing the bearing assembly from the housing, which reduces downtime and lowers maintenance costs.
