Angular contact ball bearings in many variants

Depending on the application, IBC provides a variety of high-precision angular contact ball bearings in various sizes and with different design features.

Angular contact ball bearings are offered by IBC in various designs.

The high-precision angular contact ball bearings from IBC have been developed for all kinds of rolling bearing applications. Either individually or in combination, they are reportedly produced to meet the highest requirements placed in the areas of reliability, stiffness, rotational speed and running accuracy.

The large number of types allows spindle manufacturers from different branches or special machine builders to optimize their spindles according to the aspects most important to them. The angular contact ball bearings can be supplied with contact angles of 15°, 25°, 30°, 40° and 60° and with different rolling element diameters as well as with rolling elements made of steel or ceramics. According to the manufacturers, this kind of bearing has raceways in the inner and outer ring, which are displaced with respect to each other in the direction of the bearing axis. This means that the products are suitable for radial and axial loads.

The German company points out that it offers a broad spectrum of other bearing series to meet specific needs. This wide range of products enables the bearing user to achieve higher performance at a lower cost.

Milling cutter for perfect stainless steel surfaces

Crazymill Cool is a new kind of carbide ball mill from Mikron Tool for finishing operations in titanium and nickel-based alloys.

Crazymill Cool is a new kind of carbide ball mill from Mikron Tool for finishing operations in titanium and nickel-based alloys. The coated end mill with four teeth is available in a diameter range from 1 to 8 mm for the milling depths 2xd, 3xd and 5xd, each with a cutting depth of 1.5xd.

Two further versions are available with usable milling lengths of 3xd and 4xd especially for medical applications like implants. The common features for the different models include a special geometry with progressive flutes from 30° to 40° that enable a vibration-free milling. According to the Swiss exhibitors, this ensures an excellent surface quality when milling in the radius area as well as in the cylindrical area. Integrated cooling channels continuously provide the cutting edges in each position with coolant to prevent overheating and help achieve maximum cutting speed performance as well as to flush chips out of the work zone. The result is claimed to be a surface finish in grinding quality.
