Bearing Strip


Bearing Strip is cut to length to allow for the fabrication of custom bearings. Cylinder Bearings are designed to guide the piston of a hydraulic cyclinder, restricting lateral movement, ensuring smooth cyclic motion and preventing any metal to metal contact.

Any metal to metal contact inside a cylinder will damage the sealing surfaces and cause inevitable seal damage and failure.

Selecting the right bearing for a particular application is vital in ensuring correct cylinder functionality, to prevent excessive cylinder wear and damage and in maximising the life of the sealing elements.
