Precision Sleeve Linear Plain Bearings

The compact size of Simplicity® Sleeve Bearings offers weight advantages, as well as space saving features, while retaining the other benefits of Simplicity® plain bearing technology. The precision sleeve and flange bearings are designed for press fit or slip fit and epoxy. The plain bearing design allows for simultaneous linear and rotary motion at speeds exceeding 4 m/s (165 in/s). Ball-less design will NOT catastrophically fail.


  • Absorbs hard particulates eliminating galling and shaft damage
  • Vibration damping, smooth and quiet linear motion
  • Shock loads are absorbed without damage to components
  • Reliable friction characteristics that do not increase over the life of the bearing
  • Close fit and wiping action cleans the shafting and eliminates the need for seals in 90% of applications
