Bearing Prototypes and Samples

Prototypes and Samples

Idea to Reality™

KMS wants you to feel confident before you commit to your production needs. We can supply test samples from our stock when available, or complete specials for a nominal lot charge. Our Design and Manufacturing team will take an idea and turn it into a reality. We will work with you by creating a 3D Model utilizing current internal bearing constructions to rapidly respond to your needs.

Once a design is created, testing samples can be made from either CNC machining, 3D printing and/or prototype molding. This blending of technology allows us to make low or high quantity runs of unique designs, sizes and materials in a short period of time to meet the demands of a fast paced global marketplace.


Your confidence is our priority.To request prototypes or samples simply fill out our Application Review and submit or call 1-800-448-2412.

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.
