A universal cam follower called Hexalube includes a lubrication port in its hexagonal head. The handy location makes it possible to lubricate it in tight spots. In addition, the universal design can eliminate the need to stock screwdriver slot and unsealed cam followers. The manufacturer expects most users to reduce their inventory on stud cam followers by 50% using the new universal line. The complete line is available in OD sizes from 0.75 to 7 in.

The line of Hexalube universal cam followers is dimensionally interchangeable with other needle-bearing cam followers. The universal cam follower is available in eccentric and crowned versions, and with standard and heavy-duty studs.
