LM76 Linear Motion Bearings are your best choice for fruit juice filling & packaging lines. Dried-up fruit juice  adheres
to shafting and freezes rolling element bearings in their tracks! This results in ball cage failure, shaft brinelling
( grooving ) and dreaded downtime. Replace your costly Stainless Steel linear ball bearings 
with a less expensive, proven performer. Did you know that the majority of all  hamburger patties
supplied to major fast food franchises worldwide are made on equipment that employs LM76 linear
motion bearings. LM76 is your first choice for slaughtering, shaping, slicing, portioning,
stuffing and packaging!
