Advantages of Air Bearings (.PDF Download)

March 31, 2016
Most motion applications use mechanical bearing guidance. However, there are many cases in which precision, angular repeatability, and geometric performance must be optimal, or submicron-bearing rumble is problematic. Air bearings offer distinct advantages in precision positioning, such as lacking backlash and having no static friction...
