Cam Rollers & Followers

Cam Rollers & Followers

Cam followers (also known as track followers) are a specialised type of needle roller bearings designed to follow cams. Cam followers contain a solid pin (instead of an inner ring), that is threaded so the cam follower can be attached to machinery. Two types are avaliable:

  • Single row cam followers
  • Double row cam followers

Cam rollers (cam roller bearings) are based on deep groove ball bearings and feature a thick outer ring. Cam rollers are used in a wide variety of cam drives and conveyor systems. There are three main variations of internal constructions:

  • Full compliment needle roller bearings
  • Retainer type needle roller bearings
  • Cyclindrical roller bearings
