The AndyMark Compact Elevator system is our next generation line of products to help FIRST Robotics Competition teams create high quality, reliable and robust linear motion mechanisms, such as an elevator or extension arm. The core of this system are the Bearing Kits, which are designed to be easily integrated into your robot design, and provide smooth rolling motion for your linear mechanisms. The primary load direction is supported by high strength 13mm Cam Follower needle bearings installed within machined aluminum blocks for a compact but robust bearing solution. The secondary load (or lateral loads, in a traditional FRC elevator,) is supported by 695ZZ ball bearings to keep your linear mechanisms moving and aligned. The 6061-T6 aluminum blocks have thoughtfully designed features integrated into them, including alignment grooves to help locate and support them along box tubes, as well as nut pockets machined in to support the M5 nylock nuts that retain the Cam Follower bearings.
These bearing kits are designed to accommodate up to .125" wall 1x1 and 2x1 Aluminum Box Tubing. Available in single corner bearing kits, 4 packs for 1 stage mechanisms and 8 packs for 2 stage mechanisms.
These bearing kits ship as an unassembled kit of parts.
