Rotary Table
Using a 4-point contact bearing provides high stiffness with minimum deflection resulting in a streamlined and lightweight design.

Direct Drive Assembly
A duplex pair of angular contact RBC Thin Section Ball Bearings provide the optimal load carrying capabilities in a compact design.

Lightweight Airborne Electro-Optical Imaging Equipment
This application requires bearings with combined load carrying capabilities and minimal added weight. A pair of angular contact RBC Thin Section Ball Bearings provides high stiffness and multiple load carrying capabilities in a compact, lightweight envelope.

Paper Making Machine
A pair of radial contact RBC Thin Section Ball Bearings is the ideal choice for applications with severe space constraints and significant loads.

Rotating Polishing Table
To provide necessary stiffness with a more compact, lighter weight machine design, use the 4-point contact RBC Thin Section Ball Bearing.

Rotary Joint
By using a pair of angular contact RBC Thin Section Ball Bearings, this design can carry radial, axial and moment loads.
