Precision & Composite Linear Ball Bearings

Available in composite, self-lubricating, ceramic, or stainless steel, our bearings provide superior life with superb accuracy, while maintaining high load capabilities. They can be self-aligning with or without seals and are available as just a bearing, or mounted in aluminum housings, in open or closed configurations. Load capacities range, depending on the type of material used.

Linear Shafting

Made from high carbon C1060 steel or 440C stainless steel, our shafts are available and ready for customization - with or without pre-drilled holes, can be cut to length, chamfered, straightened to within 0.002 inch per foot, and packaged in special VCI sleeves for transport. 440C is typically selected for its corrosion resistant properties. The manufacturer uses a proprietary process to heat treat their components. Hard chrome plating can be used as a substitute for stainless steel.
