Shuttle Bearings (also associated with Shuttle Arms) are linear bearings that bear the friction in a piece of food processing equipment. Tomahawk Manufacturing, Inc. has been innovating shuttle bearings along with other key components to meat processing equipment. We have replacement parts for Tomahawk, Formax® among other popular machine brands.
Tomahawk offers high quality replacement shuttle bearings for any former, including paper feed and XP styles, that increase wear life and improve performance! What’s different? Standard shuttle arms are provided as raw stock steel, which have the lower straightness and parallel tolerance of raw material. Tomahawk replacement shuttle arms are of significantly higher quality. We grind all four contact surfaces, which results in the highest tolerance straightness and parallelism. Chrome plating adheres better. The dimensional stability of Tomahawk replacement arms decreases drag on the mold plate drive system, increasing the life of shuttle bearings and wipers. Wear and tear on the connecting rod, drive arms and gearbox are also reduced. Better performance, and less machine downtime as a result! Providing our customers with higher quality, and more affordable replacement arms! That’s real value, contact us today for quote.
This kit contains four premium Vitalloy(TM) shuttle bearngs and twenty socket screwsd. All the parts you need to perform a full shuttle bearing replacement on your Formax® Forming Machine, your Tomahawk Hamburger Patty Former or your MP Equipment Former with 13" stroke.
You told us. Downtime costs money. That’s why we work to make things better, to save you time and money. It’s the Tomahawk way!
Our engineers selected a unique polymer which is oil impregnated, food grade compatible and require no lubrication for the entire life of the bearing. We call it TXL material. Not only do machine owners save in lubrication labor, but also part maintenance costs are dramatically reduced as TXL shuttle bearings last 3 times as long. Tomahawk TXL/Vitalloy® shuttle bearings are available for MP-800 and Formax® F-26™ patty forming machines.
Our engineers selected a revolutionary patented alloy which is an ultra high-wear material that contains no copper and is food grade compatible. We call it TXL/Vitalloy® material. With proper lubrication and preventative maintenance, TXL/Vitalloy® shuttle bearings last 5 times as long as traditional shuttle bearings. Tomahawk TXL/Vitalloy® shuttle bearings are available for MP-800 and Formax® F-26™ patty forming machines.
In addition to our groundbreaking TXL and and Vitalloy Shuttle Bearings, we also make standard bronze replacements for Formax® and Tomahawk Machines.
