Advantages of Flex Bearings
Flexural bearings offer many advantages over traditional bearings; they are simply packaged, compact, and an easily installed bearing that are ideal for applications that do not permit lubrication and yet demand precise positioning. Unlike traditional bearings the mechanical properties of flexural bearings are predictable, measurable, and do not degrade over time.
