drylin® R Linear bearings use in concrete pipe cutter

Ball bushings help ease maintenance
Linear bearings in pipe cutter  
pipe cutter where linear bearings can be used  

This concrete pipe cutter (pictured above) presented several problems before it was fitted with drylin® R linear bearings.

Before the new linear bearings were used, the old recirculating ball bearings of the pipe cutter would easily accumulate dirt. The dirt would cause the balls to jam and this would regularly ruin the hard-chromed shafts of the pipe cutter.

With the addition of drylin® R (RJUM-01) linear bearings, the machine has now run problem free for over three years.
