Vacuum Pre-loaded Air Bearings

OAV Vacuum Preloaded Air Bearings work on flat, nonporous surfaces such as granite, aluminum, glass, and ceramics. Its round design allows for smooth, frictionless motion. We offer a variety of sizes that can easily be used for custom air bearing systems. OAV Vacuum Preloaded Air Bearings combine the use of air pressure and a vacuum to allow for the air bearing to be held down while simultaneously being lifting from surface.
