Non Magnetic Bearings for MRI Equipment
A plastic race radial ball bearing fitted with borosilicate glass balls is the only type of ball bearing used in MRI patient tables . Its nonmetallic nature is required because the imaging area must remain nonmagnetic, or metal free.
Critical Design Features: POM, PBT, or UHMW-PE plastic races and cage fitted with borosilicate balls for total nonmetallic construction. True Race Technology™ ball grooves reduce friction and improve performance. UHMW-PE or Polyurethane can be used as the outer race wheel to reduce noise and be non marking when the bearing wheel runs on a hard track surface.
Additional reasons for use:
- No lube required: The ability to run without lubrication is a benefit when cleanliness is a priority.
- Integration & assemblies: KMS can design a custom housing to provide a complete assembly. Spherical profiles can be designed on the outer race of the bearing to create an “all in one” bearing wheel.
