Simply Bearings is your one-stop shop for new and replacement components for a broad array of industrial, commercial and domestic applications. From common and widely applicable ball bearings to specialist parts, we are certain to have precisely the component that you require. Our extensive range of stock is housed in our modern 20,000 sq ft warehouse based in the UK, and we are proud to include in our stock a selection of clamp rings designed for engineering purposes.
Our range of clamp rings is predominantly manufactured by German firm IGUS, a brand synonymous with high quality and uncompromising accuracy in production. The majority of our clamp rings are designed as an adjunct part for IGUS' polymer ball transfer units.
Ball transfer units consist of an external fixed container, inside which are mounted ball bearings - usually one larger bearing supported by many smaller bearings. This component is used frequently in industrial manufacturing operations and in conveyance systems, with the larger bearing exposed and positioned in an array called a 'ball transfer table', facilitating swift transport of objects.
IGUS specialise in the production of plastic-based components and their polymer ball transfer units allow lubricant-free operation and conveyance of sensitive goods, such as in the food handling industry and pharmaceuticals. The entire construction uses polymer, delivering low friction coefficients along with minimal maintenance. The nature of polymer makes these ball transfer units ideal for low load-bearing environments.
This high functionality is extended even further via the use of a ball bearing clamp ring. Very straightforward to assemble and disassemble, the use of a clamp ring allows the ball transfer unit to be installed in a variety of different orientations, apart from the horizontal position, as standard. IGUS' range is produced from stainless steel, making the component resistant to corrosion as well as being highly economical.
We value our customers more than anything else, and so we are proud to offer generous volume purchase discounts, making an already economical product even more affordable. Alongside this, we offer free delivery on all UK orders and same-day dispatch for all orders placed before 4pm. We know that in today's world of technology, security is paramount, and all orders placed on our website use a 128bit SSL encryption system to guarantee the protection and safeguarding of your details.
