Modular Air Bearings

The OAV Modular Air Bearing design subdivides motion systems into smaller installable parts. They can be independently installed and then used in different systems and shapes. OAV Modular Air Bearings make use of industry standards for interfaces. 

OAV Modular Air Bearings offer many benefits such as reduction in cost, shorter installation time, flexibility in design, augmentation, and exclusion. It is a complete offering of air bearings produced with the design for easy retrofitting into existing applications or designing into new applications for ultimate accuracy positioning.

OAV Air Bearings generate evenly distributed gas films between surface and the substrate. Because of low gas viscosity and friction losses by viscous shearing, mechanical contact is avoided. Our modular air bearings are manufactured with aerospace quality material. They are ultra-precise with exceptional linear straightness and flatness. Vibration and maintenance-free, ready to install.
