SMB's new non-magnetic bearings brochure...

Technology 16-12-2016

We're delighted to be starting work on a new brochure, to showcase our non-magnetic bearings - we have plastic (acetal resin), ceramic & 316 grade stainless steel bearings available for a diverse range of applications. Sometimes applications require bearings to be non-magnetic or non-conductive. Such bearings may be required in medical equipment such as MRI scanners, electron beam process equipment, semiconductor equipment, liquid crystal manufacturing, magnetometers and other areas of the electronics industry for example.

Different materials for rings, balls and cage are required where a bearing is required to be non-magnetic or non-conductive. We have various options. Our semi-precision acetal resin bearings have either 316 stainless steel balls or glass which fit these requirements. 

We can supply full ceramic bearings most commonly made from zirconium dioxide or silicon nitride or, alternatively, austenitic stainless steel bearings made from 316 grade stainless steel. The cages are made from non-magnetic and non-conductive material such as acetal resin or PEEK and the balls are either 316 stainless steel or ceramic.

If you'd like to find out a little more (before our swanky new brochure is unveiled 😉) then please contact us or you can find more details at our website.

Our determination to remain specialised gives us a high level of product knowledge, providing bearing and lubrication solutions to existing or potential customers, whether individuals or large corporations. We don’t just sell bearings, we help to solve your problems. - Chris Johnson, managing director of SMB Bearings.
