The UCFX pillow block consists of a bearing insert with a spherical outer diameter in a cast iron housing. The bearing is usually fixed to the shaft by means of two set screws in the extended portion of the inner ring.
Mounted bearings combine a bearing mounted inside a housing unit. The bearing housing replaces the need for a casting or weldment to position the bearing securely for reliable operation, and its design determines the type of insert bearing. Insert bearings use rolling elements (ball, cylindrical, spherical, barrel, needle, spindled, or tapered) to maintain the separation between moving parts to reduce rotational friction, and to support radial and axial loads. Available in a variety of materials and mounting configurations; mounted bearings can be one or two pieces. They can have an extended inner ring and locking device and they can have seals and end caps that retain lubrication and protect the working parts of the bearing from environmental debris. Mounted bearings support shafts in a variety of mounting configurations (flange block, hanger, pillow block, and take-up block) and are used in a range of applications from light duty shaft guidance on conveyors to road building equipment and crushers.
Common usage for UCFX Series 4-Bolt Flange Bearing includes the following: Agricultural, Automotive, Construction, Sporting and Consumer Goods, Pump, Manufacturing Equipment, Fan Assembles, Farm Machinery, Conveyor, Feed Mill, Economical Housed Bearing, and many other Industrial Equipments.
