The plastic roller makes these Cam Followers the best choice for many applications.
New Hyde Park, NY – SDP/SI – Stock
Drive Products/Sterling Instrument, a leader in comprehensive mechanical solutions
for a wide variety of product applications has expanded their product offering
with the introduction of a new series of Plastic Cam Followers. Cam Followers
using plastic composite rollers are a maintenance-free alternative to
traditional metal designs, providing cost-saving benefits.
Combining a Stainless Steel shaft and plastic-composite roller these Cam Followers are designed to transmit motion in today’s high-speed and light-duty machines in medical, packaging, and semi-conductor equipment. “The plastic roller makes these Cam Followers the best choice for many applications, including food processing or cleanroom operations”, says Cris Ioanitescu, SDP/SI Applications Engineering Manager. “Two possible sources of contamination – excess grease and metal particulates due to metal-on-metal contact are eliminated due to the self-lubricating material of the roller. Additionally, the softer plastic roller does not wear the metal cam or rail it is running on. The savings of not having to replace these parts could be substantial.”
A direct replacement for metal cam followers, the Plastic Cam Followers are lube-free and quiet running due to shock and vibration absorbing capabilities. Series S7NSRY-… are offered in a range of sizes, 5/8” up to 2-1/2” O.D. and can be purchased at the SDP/SI E-store. Other materials and cu...

Which Drive System is Best for Your Application - It Depends
A common question that arises when designing an application involving power transmission is, “how will this system transfer motion?” Two of the most popular answers to this question are: a Gear Drive System or a Belt and Pulley Drive System. Here at SDP/SI our application engineers are asked “which is better?” And just as with everything else in engineering, It Depends. In this whitepaper we explore both options, the advantages, disadvantages, and circumstances that are better for one over the other. Get the information you need and start designing!
