Miniature Bearings

Dec. 8, 2005
Miniature bearings work for high-speed applications in the medical, dental, commercial aviation/aerospace, lab-instrumentation, and semiconductormanufacturing equipment industries.

The bearings come with ceramic rolling elements in a wide selection of steels, closures, mounting configurations, cages ( retainers), and lubricants. Preloading-radial or angular-contact bearings boost rigidity, improves running accuracy, and prevents ball skidding at high speeds and during acceleration and deceleration.
