CERAMIC ROLLING ELEMENTS (top)

CERAMIC ROLLING ELEMENTS

HB Bearings can supply our manufactured bearings with silicon nitride balls and rollers. These elements are ideal for high speeds, high acceleration and deceleration. They also have low thermal expansion and are more tolerant of poor lubrication.
