SKF Shaft carriers and shaft blocks
The shafts which SKF manufactures can be mounted in two ways. It is possible to mount the shafts between two shaft support block, which are mounted at both ends. Also, it is possible to mount them by means of shaft support, these typically run the entire length of the shaft and therefore require the use of open linear bearing units. For heavily loaded linear bearing units and/or long track length, it is recommended to use shaft support to eliminate bending.

The SKF linear shaft support blocks LSHS are made of extruded aluminium. It is possible to attach them by through bolts or by bolts, via threaded holes, directly to the support surface. The LSHS is specifically suited for bearings from SKF series 1. The LSHS is available in sizes between 12 and 50 mm.
For heavily loaded linear bearing units and/or long track lengths, it is recommended to use shaft support to eliminate shaft bending. The SKF linear shaft carrier LRCB comes standard with pre-drilled holes so that it can directly be mounted on various SKF shafts. The LRCB is available in sizes between 12 and 80 mm.
