Micro-Ball Thrust Bearings

May 24, 2007
Micro-ball thrust bearings are designed using an injection-molded, selflubricating 6/6 nylon retainer with grade 100 tolerance, hardened-steel balls, and micro-finish thrust washers for reduced noise and increased durability.

The retainer captures the balls in precision-molded pockets for smooth, free-turning operation. The bearings come in carbon and stainless steel in 4 to 12-mm ID.
