Product Integration

Many times a bearing is mounted into another part, such as a plastic housing, pulley, sprocket, wheel or a mounted block. Utilizing the design concept of an integrated plastic ball bearing, KMS Bearings, Inc. can integrate the mating component for use as the raceway of the bearing, i.e.: pulley as the outer ring, or the shaft as the inner ring. The end result is fewer parts, reduced assembly time and overall lower cost.

See Custom Bearing Showcase for examples of actual integrated plastic race ball bearings that illustrate mounting features such as pulleys, fixing clips, snap in design etc. They were all manufactured for a specific application and provided solutions to many design challenges.

Plastic Vs Steel

Customizable Design: Custom 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.
