Innovations in material science are changing a lot of industries these years. Ceramic materials are proving stronger and much more durable than e.g. steel – and this impacts your industry, too.
Hybrid ball bearings are the future in demanding applications. They outlast and outperform common bearing types and have a service life of 4 to 8 times longer than steel bearings – in most cases even longer.
Tougher than the rest
The CeramicSpeed Xtreme ball bearing series are designed for applications in contaminated environments, where particles can penetrate the bearing and affect the bearing performance. Characterized by unmatched hardness, the hybrid balls tolerate a high degree of contamination, crushing the particles that penetrate into the bearing races. They are also highly resistant against water and detergents because Silicon Nitride does not corrode.
This CeramicSpeed Xtreme series can also be manufactured and optimized specifically for oscillating applications.
These applications match special machines, where a bearing not performing full rotation is needed.
