ASAHI Aluminum series
This ASAHI series of light-weighted self-aligning bearing units consisting of stainless steel bearing insert mounted in aluminum-alloy housings. The combination of stainless steel bearing and aluminum housing offers an excellent corrosion-resistance, beautiful appearance and hygienic machine design.
While Aluminum series weights only 1/2 of the corresponding cast iron housed units, it is as good as standard units in terms od static breaking strength in every direction.
Typical application: food procesing machinery, packaging machinery, medical equipment, textile machinery
