Ceramic Bearings are designed for photonics applications.
October 14, 2013 -
Meeting photonics industry demands, ceramic bearings are non-magnetic, non-corrosive, and non-conductive. Non-porous nature lends to low coefficient of friction and minimizes or eliminates need for lubricant, accommodating clean room environments. Products are available as ceramic hybrid bearings and full ceramic bearings and are also suited for harsh environments where high temperatures and corrosive substances are present.

Bearings for Photonics Applications
Boynton, Beach (FL) - The Boca Bearing Company announces ceramic bearings specially designed for the demands of the photonics industry. Boca Bearings provides solutions for photonic companies by offering bearings that are non-magnetic, non-corrosive, non-conductive, and extremely low friction. Offered as both ceramic hybrid bearings and full ceramic bearings, these bearings are ideally suited for demanding photonics environments. Advances in photonics technology means that today's industrial laser systems offer unparalleled capabilities in precision manufacturing and advanced materials processing.
The science of photonics includes the emission, transmission, amplification, detection, and modulation of light. The manufacture of photonic devices requires the alignment of components that transmit signals by light through fiber optic cables. Best suited to laser technology, applications include laser welding and marking of packages, transmitters, receivers, and passive devices.
Ceramic bearings are suitable for use in many specialty applications seeking to reduce conductivity, magnetism, overall weight and rolling resistance. Ceramic bearings are also ideal for extremely harsh environments where high temperatures and corrosive substances are present. Because ceramic is non-porous it has an extremely low coefficient of friction and require little to no lubricant which means they are appropriate for clean room environments.
The Boca Bearing Company stocks a full range of standard bearings, ceramic balls, ceramic hybrid bearings and full ceramic bearings. With over 6000 different bearing sizes and well over four million bearings in stock, The Boca Bearing Company offers the largest stock of replacement bearings for all applications. Boca Bearings never has a minimum order and has consistently led the industry in bringing advanced ceramic technologies to market.
