Heavy duty ball bearing hinge

Written by: Chris Shaw | Published:

Item has introduced a heavy duty 'Ball Bearing Hinge 8 40x40' for the Item Line-8 aluminium profile machine construction kit.

This complements an existing hinge, similar in appearance, but allows heavy dynamic loads to be applied and to swing through up to 180 degrees, on a continuous basis.
Each hinge incorporates two ball bearings, permitting both radial loads of up to 2500N and moment loads of 45Nm on the hinge.

The existing plain-bearing hinge will continue to be available for less heavily loaded dynamic applications, or as a convenient means of attaching bracing struts, where the angle of the hinge is usually fixed.

The new ball-bearing hinges may be seen on the Machine Building Systems website and are available now from Machine Building Systems' Ripley factory.
