Non-Contact Ultra Precision Motion

Through recent technical advances, Air bearings offer inherent advantages over traditional bearings as well as create opportunity for a much broader range of applications. But OAV Air bearings offer more: integrated Air bearings, Aerospace materials and standardization of product and proven performance in the most demanding applications.

Our Round Design frictionless motion, Flat Round air bearings works on flat, nonporous surfaces such as granite, aluminum, glass, and ceramics We offer a variety of sizes which can easily be used to customize air bearing systems. 

Oav Air bearings have higher stiffness and excellent geometric performance. Oav Roller Air Bearings pre-loads both horizontal and vertical surface with opposing thin film pressure, this maintains the perfect gap ultimate tolerance. OAV Air Bearings surface design equally distributes the air and pre-load over a entire surface area; the result is outstanding stiffness and maximized performance.

The Outer Spin Rotary Air Bearing is yet another significant advancement produced by OAV Air Bearings. This innovative product is hard-installable and ultra precise with a fixed location, here to replace your conventional bearing, supply airlines through the shaft or inner ring.

Our Patent Pending OAV thrust Air Bearing is a breakthrough innovation in Air bearing technology. For the first time, an Air bearing is available that fully integrates and works on 3 way Frictionless surface. OAV Thrust air bearings configurations runs on standard size shafting fix or linear motion while maximize stiff motion and ultra precise with Aerospace quality Titanium.

We offer a line of flat rectangular air bearing components designed to meet the non-contact requirements at low-cost while yielding high performance. OAV Flat 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.

Modular Air Bearing design, that subdivides motion system into smaller installable parts, OAV modular air bearing can be independently install and then used in different systems and different shape.

OAV Profile Rail Guides consists of the next generation Oav Air Bearing® and manufactured from Aircraft Quality light weight linear guides, Box Series, T-Series and U-series.  It is a complete offering of Air Bearing slides in a wide range of styles, sizes and unique features produced for easy retrofitting into existing applications or designing into new applications

Oav Vacuum Pre-loaded Air Bearing are a combination of air pressure and vacuum, air bearings hold it down while simultaneously lifting from the surface.

OAV Air bearings provides its expertise for producing and mounting air-bearings according to customer drawings or our standard air bearing assembly stages. Our engineers support the customer in designing the bearing structures and in selecting the production technologies.

Our Patent Pending Oav thrust Air Bearing's another breakthrough innovation its latest High-Temperature Thrust Air Bearings. OAV High-Temperature Air Bearings for the temperature to the point where it becomes a problem.  Applications under exposure to extremely high  speeds, high ambient temperatures, and hot process
