New Air Bearings brochure out now!

1 minutes reading - published on March 11, 2024

Our new Porous Media Air Bearings brochure is out! Now packed with a wider selection of air bearings types, detailed specs and new applications.

Different applications require different types of air bearings, each with their unique features, optimized for specific needs in precision motion, positioning, and transport. They provide outstanding bearing solutions avoiding the traditional bearing-related problems of friction, wear and lubricants. One of the greatest advantages is that air bearings provide new options for designers to push the envelope on precision, high speed, and high acceleration applications.

  • Zero friction and wear; better crash resistance and damping
  • Supports high speeds and acceleration
  • Ensures straighter motion (unlike rolling element bearings insensitive to surface finishes and guide irregularities)
  • Eliminates oil; positive air pressure self-cleaning in dusty environments
  • Performs a silent and smooth operation
  • Low air consumption
  • Maintenance free
  • Cleanroom compatible
