Floating Bearing


Problem Statement:  Material must remain in continuous contact with roller drive mechanism to ensure the integrity of the operation and control of the material.

Background:  We are transferring flexible material that has a tendency to bend through a machine which cuts the material in various directions.  It is critical for the drive rollers to be in contact with the material at all times.


Solution:  Design a bearing assembly that has one shaft in a fixed position and the second bearing in a floating position.

Results:  The “floating” shaft is allowed to move and force the material to conform to the operation of the drive mechanism.
