The Franke Principle

In Franke Wire Race Bearings and Linear Systems, the rolling process does not take place directly between the rolling element and the mating structure, but instead with low friction on the inserted raceways. Our customers may choose whichever material, geometry, size,bore pattern, gear and sealing they require. The material for the mating structure ranges from all sorts of steel, aluminium, bronce up to plastics,carbon (CFK) or 3D-printing.
