- Each GS Live Center uses either a 3, 4, or the incredible 5-bearing system. Each bearing system has been individually and specifically designed for the applications in which that live center is meant to be used. This specificity of design provides superior performance and tool life across the entire GS line of centers.
- An additional special coating process is applied to the lip seal contact area. This coating offers a higher sealing ability and reduces rotational friction, both contributing to longer tool life.
- If roller bearings are used at high temperatures, the hardness of the bearing steel decreases. Consequently the basic load rating, which depends on the physical properties of the material, also decreases. GS Live Centers are designed to prevent excessive heat. Live center temperatures are controlled even when rotating at maximum RPM.
- Every single center has passed at least 4 different accuracy tests to ensure our customers the highest quality available in the market today.
