Our spherical air bearings portfolio

These spherical air bearings offer frictionless, unconstrained motion for a variety of applications. The spherical air bearings are shaped out of porous media to support a sphere on a stiff cushion of air. The spherical cup can also come vacuum pre-loaded for added positioning precision. Both standard and custom made solutions are offered.

The air bearings are constructed out of a porous carbon substrate. The millions of sub-micron passageways that wind through the material naturally restrict air flow leaving a uniform, stiff air cushion at the surface of the bearing. Since the holes are evenly distributed over the surface of the bearing, unlike orifice air bearings, pressure gradients never occur making crashes a thing of the past.
