Spare Linear Bearings.

Recommended Posts

I don't have a supplier for you (except if you can order as a company and not a private person), but maybe I can help you specifying what you need exactly.

You're looking for a double length linear bearing for 6mm shafts:

Shaft diameter: 6mm

Outer diameter: 12mm

Length: 35mm

The Misumi article no for this would be:

LMUW6 (bearing steel, non-stainless but very hard. Recommended)

SLMUW6 (stainless steel)

But Misumi only accepts business customers :(


Ultimaker uses the article no "LM6LUU" (from another manufacturer...). You might find something with this...

Were the ones you bought any good?

I bought a set of 4 on ebay which were, in theory, of a reasonable quality, but they were nowhere near as quiet/smooth as the originals.

Currently still seeking a couple of these for my printer.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
