Cam Follower Bearings
McGill offers Metric CAMROL ® bearings in metric dimensions equivalent to ISOstandard series. Both European and Asian versions are available.
Metric CAMROL bearings are available in stud or yoke type versions. Specifying the type of bearing needed depends upon the preference for either a straddle (yoke) mounting or a cantilever (overhung) mounting.
Metric CAMROL bearings are available with three types of internal construction: full complement needle rollers, retainer type needle rollers or cylindrical rollers.
With a proven track record on inch cam followers, McGill brings many key features and manufacturing practices to the metric CAMROL series that outlast the competition. In test laboratories, McGill CAMROL bearings last up to 24 times longer than some competitors.
Hex Hole Option for Ease of Installation
The hex hole option reduces costs by speeding installation or removal of stud type cam followers. During typical installation or removal, the bearing must be held in place while torque is applied to the mounting nuts. The optional hex hole increases secure holding power over the standard screwdriver slot in the face of the bearing. The hex hole option is standard for stud type Heavy-Duty, Special-Duty
and Corrosion-Resistant (CRES) CAMROL ® bearings and is an option for standard CAMROL bearings.
The hex hole option is ideal for:
• Difficult to reach assemblies
• Blind hole mounting
• Equipment with many bearings
Note: The hex hole option does not allow for relubrication from the roller end of the bearing on most sizes.
Crowned OD Option for Long Life
A slight crown on the OD of a cam follower bearing can increase bearing life up to three times longer than
the standard, cylindrical OD bearing. The crown helps more evenly distribute stresses for the following
• Heavy loading
• Misalignment of track or housing
• Turntable or rotary cams
Note: The crowned O.D. is an option for standard CAMROL and Heavy-Duty CAMROL bearings.
Heavy-Duty CAMROL ® for Incidental Thrust Applications
While standard needle bearing cam followers are the economical choice for most applications, inciden-
tal thrust loads make Heavy-Duty CAMROL bearings a better choice. Primary causes of incidental thrust
are misalignment of housing or track, high loading causing stud deflection and rotary tracks or cams.
Heavy-Duty CAMROL bearings employ a unique internal construction, consisting of two rows of cylindri-
cal rollers designed to manage much of the thrust.
Rubber lip seals are standard in Heavy-Duty CAMROL bearings. Although standard cam followers do well
in most conditions, the rubber lip seals in Heavy-Duty CAMROL bearings increase protection against con-
Standard bearing has no relubrication feature. Seals are pointed inward for improved grease retention.
The large lubricant reservoir and rubber lip seals keep more grease in the bearing for maintenance free
