FLAT AIR BEARINGS

Flat air bearings offer engineers an easy way to design and build their own custom air bearing assemblies. Made using porous materials and ultra-precision manufacturing techniques, both the round & rectangular configurations can provide a more efficient bearing surface alignment.

Available off-the-shelf, these standard bearings compare favorably with conventional rolling element bearings across virtually every performance characteristic. They are appropriate for highly-loaded applications, and are the easiest type of bearings to integrate into prototype designs as they can be readily replaced or changed.

They are also easy to apply. The gimbled mount allows for great flexibility in tolerance and the threaded ball studs make alignment simple. In addition to the standard product line (shown), custom flat bearings are also available, including replacement bearings for many CMM's.
