OAV Manufacturing Technology
Supplying top-quality products requires excellent engineering, clever design, and outstanding manufacturing technology. Thus, we have developed competitive advantages by having them all available, and we are committed to developing human and technological resources to do things differently to increase productivity. We support manufacturers with vital motion systems, developed winning models, advocated for next-generation motion systems, and built dynamic ecosystems to sustain new concepts and solutions that contribute to your products' overall growth.
OAV Air Bearing technology generates evenly distributed gas film between the surface and the substrate. Due to low gas viscosity and friction loss by viscous shearing, any mechanical contact is avoided, and no contact between the surface creates a no slip-stick phenomenon. Air bearings coefficient of friction is a function of air shear from motion, not from surface contact. Therefore, there would be zero friction at zero velocity, and OAV technology makes infinite motion resolution possible; the result is outstanding stiffness, maximized performance, ultimate precision, and highest speed.
"OAV is committed to meeting the highest quality environmental and safety standards "
Our experienced and highly skilled employees run custom and OEM orders using state-of-the-art equipment and inspection systems.
Our flexibility concedes us to inspect all of our precision parts after the initial fabrication process and before packaging. All inspections adhere to the ANSI/ASQ Z1.4-2008, MIL-STD-105E acceptable quality level.
Our commitment to the highest quality standards, not only for our products but also for our organizational processes, is reflected by our integrated management system.
Our strategy and quality management system promote continuous quality improvement while metrics quantify measurable results. We have adopted international quality standards to maintain continuous achievements, and our quality system is certified with
