Frictionless Air Bearing Bar

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).
