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.
Part # OAVCB6060
The OAV Air Bearing Bar generates an evenly distributed film of gas between the surface and the substrate. Because of low gas viscosity and friction losses by viscous shearing, mechanical contact is avoided. The combination of air pressure and vacuum allows the OAV air bearing bar to hold the substrate down while simultaneously lifting it from the surface for ultimate precision and fly height (20 to 120 μm at stability of ±5 μm).
Flat Rectangular Air Bearings
We provide designs that are integrated into your product and we can quickly develop a design based on the application or specific requirements. We provide detailed drawings and 3-D CAD models, can analysis complex issues associated with application from nanometer accuracy positioning to standard calculations.
