Disposable Bearings for Medical Applications
A plastic radial ball bearing is ideal for single use, disposable medical components. It’s lube free, non corroding nature makes it ideal for sterilization.
Critical Design Features: Bearings can be made from POM, PBT, PEEK, PVDF or PP plastic races and 316 stainless balls for hostile environment compatibility. True Race Technology™ bearing design delivers superior performance. Bearing construction can be either full complement or cage type based on load and speed requirements.
Additional reasons for use:
- Lower friction: A plastic race bearing will naturally have a lower coefficient of friction than a metal to metal ball bearing.
- A KMS plastic bearing can be designed with special shapes or profiles to better suit your application. It will provide ease of assembly and improved life and performance of your product.
- Weight Savings: A KMS plastic ball bearing is 1/5 the weight of a steel bearing thereby reducing the weight of your overall unit.
