Commercial Plastic Balls

Commercial Plastic Balls


Lightweight Nylon Balls provide maximum strength while able to withstand shock. Plastic balls are available in 19 diameters ranging in size from .09375 thru 1.0.

Commercial Ball Bearings

Commercial Ball Bearings


Ball Bearings are made of hardened rolling elements and races, a separator is used to space the rolling elements and reduce friction. This shielded or sealed bearing is widely used in instruments and machines to minimize frictions and power loss. The deep groove ball bearing is the most versatile with sealed grease lubrication. Radial loads and thrust-load capacities may be approximately equal in this bearing. With the proper separator it is very good for high-speed operation. A separator of steel ribbon is used for intermediate speeds and at low speeds, no bearing separator is needed. Because of the simple design and the elimination of a separate lubrication system, these bearings can be found in numerous applications.

Commercial Flange Mounted Bearings
