McGill® CRES™ CAMROL® Bearings Solution

A beverage bottling plant was experiencing failures on the standard cam followers used on their case packer. Due to the environment, excessive corrosion was resulting in reduced bearing life, which required the cam followers be replaced every three months.

McGill® Solution

The standard cam followers were replaced with McGill® CRES CAMROL® stainless steel cam followers, which were dimensionally interchangeable with standard cam followers.
