Installing Cam Follower Bearings

Share This Page

For every unique application, mounting a yoke roller or cam follower should be considered. Operating results could be significantly impacted by a variety of factors such as operating environments, loading requirements, working conditions, and lubrication.


The following considerations are paramount when mounting cam followers or yoke rollers:


  • Ensure that the housing and support shaft can withstand the intended loading.
  • Ensure that the housing face is flat and square to the housing bore.
  • Chamfers should not exceed 0.5mm.
  • Excessive torque should be avoided when tightening the clamping nuts.
  • Yoke Rollers should be completely clamped on both ends of the side washers.


Because of the unique nature of each application, this information should only be referred to as a guideline. For guidance specific to your requirements, please get in touch with us directly.
