Technological advancements have allowed air bearings to offer inherent advantages over traditional bearings as well as the opportunity to be used for a much broader range of applications. OAV Air Bearings offers integrated air bearings, aerospace materials, product standardization, and high proven performance in the most demanding applications.

The OAV Roller Air Bearing pre-loads both horizontal and vertical surfaces with an opposing thin film of pressure. This maintains the perfect gap for ultimate tolerance. The surface design equally distributes the air and pre-loads it over an entire surface area. The result? Outstanding stiffness and maximized performance levels.

The Outer Spin Rotary Air Bearing is another significant advancement made by OAV Air Bearing. Here to replace your conventional bearings, this innovative product is hard-installable and ultra precise with a fixed location. 

The Modular Air Bearing design subdivides motion systems into smaller installable parts. OAV Modular Air Bearings can be independently installed and used in different systems and different shapes.

Our flat round air bearings work on flat, nonporous surfaces such as granite, aluminum, glass, and ceramics. We offer a variety of sizes which can easily be used to customize your air bearing systems. 

Our patent pending OAV Thrust Air Bearing is a breakthrough innovation in air bearing industries. For the first time, an air bearing is available that fully integrates and works on three-way frictionless surface. OAV Thrust Air Bearings run on a standard size shafting fix, and maximizes stiff motion with precision. Made with aerospace quality titanium.

OAV Profile Rail Guides are the next generation of OAV Air Bearings. Consisting of the Box Series, T-Series and the U-Series, they are light weight and made with aircraft quality material. Applicable for a wide range of styles, sizes, and unique features, they are produced for easy retrofitting into existing applications or designing into new applications.

Our patent pending High-Temperature Thrust Air Bushing line is the perfect solution for applications where certain temperatures become a problem. This product is able to withstand extreme temperatures. 

We offer a line of flat rectangular air bearings designed to meet the non-contact requirements at low cost while yielding high performance. OAV Flat Rectangular Air Bearings are often used as a standard, off-the-shelf solution for providing axial constraint in rotary motion applications. Our standard product line is available in metric sizing as well as the custom sizing made to order upon request.
