Kilian Custom Bearing Assemblies for Hospital Overbed Tables
A leading international hospital equipment manufacturer needed a cost-effective
bearing solution to replace the nylon bushings used on its adjustable height overbed
tables. The bearings allow the telescoping table base to be raised and lowered for
optimum ergonomic patient use.
In an effort to reduce costs, Kilian engineers worked closely with the customer during
the development of a custom double row ball bearing assembly. The units feature an
overmolded black Celcon® outer race that is grooved to ride within the contour of the
table’s aluminum vertical column. The Celcon copolymer material also reduces noise
during operation. The bearings are shielded to protect against dust and dirt.
