SMB's new non-magnetic bearings brochure...

We're delighted to be starting work on a new brochure, to showcase our non-magnetic bearings - we have plastic (acetal resin), ceramic & 316 grade stainless steel bearings available for a diverse range of applications...

Sometimes applications require bearings to be non-magnetic or non-conductive. Such bearings may be required in medical equipment such as MRI scanners, electron beam process equipment, semiconductor equipment, liquid crystal manufacturing, magnetometers and other areas of the electronics industry for example.

Different materials for rings, balls and cage are required where a bearing is required to be non-magnetic or non-conductive. We have various options. Our semi-precision acetal resin bearings have either 316 stainless steel balls or glass which fit these requirements. 


Flanged plastic/acetal bearings...

We can supply full ceramic bearings most commonly made from zirconium dioxide or silicon nitride or, alternatively, austenitic stainless steel bearings made from 316 grade stainless steel. The cages are made from non-magnetic and non-conductive material such as acetal resin or PEEK and the balls are either 316 stainless steel or ceramic.
