Linear Shaft Support
Thomson SB16, 1in Nominal Shaft Dia., Malleable Iron End Support
For end support or intermittent support Shaft support blocks are used for end or intermittent support where loads are light and deflection between supports is not a problem. Unlikeshaft support rails, blocks do not permit longitudinal passage of open-type Ball Bushing bearings. Type SB shaft support blocks enable clamping of shafts and eliminate the need for bolts, etc. tomaintain shaft position. Shimming is suggested for high precision applications to eliminate the effect of variations in surface of base or manufacturing tolerances between supports.
