Bearings for Industrial Applications

ENGINEERING GRADE POLYMER MATERIALS

KMS polymer race bearings run in environments without the worry of corrosion or lubrication.  KMS polymer materials have low water absorption and offer good wear properties for long life.  KMS stainless race ball bearings utilize type 316 stainless which provides superior corrosion resistance when compared to conventional steel and 440 stainless bearings. 316 stainless is more resistant to atmospheric and general corrosive conditions than any of the other standard stainless steels.

TRUE RACE TECHNOLOGY™

KMS produces plastic race radial ball bearings featuring TRUE RACE TECHNOLOGY™.  KMS employs custom automated speed lathes to machine in the ball grooves. This removes any molding imperfections and produces a deep ball groove radius that is consistent and concentric for optimum bearing performance and life.

A combination of the right materials and TRUE RACE TECHNOLOGY™ bearing design delivers superior performance and life.

Plastic Vs Steel

Cleanliness/Hygienic: Plastic bearings generally operate cleaner than metal bearings because they do not need lubrication, they are resistant to corrosion, and they can be washed down without the worry of re-lubing. This capability makes them a viable option for clean room environments, and wash down applications. A plastic bearing made from either PBT, PVDF or PEEK can be post sterilized by standard methods such as autoclave or Gamma.
