Plastic and 316 SS Custom Bearings

 Special designs are readily and inexpensively made from plastics. This allows engineers complete freedom to design the bearing around the device rather than attempting to design the device around a limited range of standard bearings.KMS can design a bearing around a stock cage that is determined by the load, speed and overall size requirement. We have standard cages to accommodate bearing sizes for as small as ½ inch O.D. to as large as 5" I.D. If we do not have a cage for your size requirement we can easily create a new cage size by machining, 3D printing or producing a new mold tool.

There are numerous modification possibilities for our standard bearing. We can modify the round hole to a hex, square, or to a self-mounting fastening design. The standard round outer ring can be modified to a two-hole flange, a sprocket, a gear or a self-mounting fastening system.

Consider the unconventional by calling KMS Bearings, Inc. We'll work with you to select the right design, size, and material to best fit the application.

Plastic Vs Steel

Product Integration: A plastic bearing can be mounted into other components or parts such as plastic wheels, pulleys or housings. In certain design concepts, seamless integration can be achieved where the bearing will have the pulley profile as the outer ring, and the shaft or a fixing clip replaces the inner ring . This integration lowers assembly time and also results in utilization of fewer parts, increasing affordability.
