The Boca Bearing Company has expanded their line of high precision ceramic hybrid, and steel deep groove radial bearings. Boca Bearing Company offers standard and ceramic hybrid ABEC #7 and ABEC #9 bearings suitable for the demanding applications in aerospace, medical and dental devices, flow meters, and advanced manufacturing.
The ABEC scale is an industry accepted standard for the tolerances of a ball bearing. It was developed by the Annular Bearing Engineering Committee (ABEC) of the American Bearing Manufacturers Association (ABMA). There are five classes from largest to smallest tolerances: 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9. The higher ABEC classes provide better precision, efficiency, and greater speed capabilities.
Ceramic hybrid ball bearings use ceramic balls and steel races. Ceramic balls weigh up to 40% less than steel balls, depending on size. This reduces centrifugal loading and skidding, so hybrid ceramic bearings can operate up to 50% faster than conventional bearings. This means that the outer race groove exerts less force inward against the ball as the bearing spins. This reduction in force reduces the friction and rolling resistance. The lighter ball allows the bearing to spin faster, and uses less energy to maintain its speed.
Suitable applications for high precision bearings are medical devices, aerospace, machine tools, dental tools, turbine flow meters, food processing equipment, robotics and optics.
The Boca Bearing Company stocks a full range of ceramic balls, ceramic hybrid bearings and full ceramic bearings. With over 8000 different bearings and well over 10 million bearings in stock, The Boca Bearing Company offers the largest stock of replacement bearings for all industrial, medical, and specialty applications. Boca Bearings has consistently led the industry in bringing advanced ceramic technologies to market. The Boca Bearing Company is one of the most trusted names in ceramic bearing technology.
