BOCA BEARING CO.: Ceramic Bearings

This company is expanding its product line to include bearings and lubricants suitable for the automation and advanced manufacturing industries. The new line of full ceramic bearings, ceramic hybrid bearings, and lubricants is geared toward the automation and advanced manufacturing industries. The ceramic bearings can be used in a variety of manufacturing environments, ranging from extreme temperatures and high speeds to heavy loads.

Ceramic hybrid ball bearings use steel races and ceramic balls. Ceramic balls weigh up to 40% less than steel balls. This can reduce centrifugal loading and skidding, allowing hybrid ceramic bearings to operate up to 50% faster than conventional bearings. Ceramic hybrid ball bearings have ceramic balls in place of steel balls, and are constructed with steel inner and outer rings.

Full ceramic bearings are made entirely of ceramic material and offer many benefits compared to common steel bearings. Full ceramic bearings can reportedly continue to work under extremely high temperatures and are capable of operation at temperatures up to 1800°F. Full ceramic bearings are reportedly highly corrosion resistant, can stand up to most common acids, and are non-conductive.
