Air Bearing vs Contact Bearing: What to Know Before Upgrading

Most engineers start exploring the benefits of air bearings once their manufacturing tolerances drop to less than 1 micron. Why is that?

Unlike mechanical, metal, or ball bearings, an air bearing provides zero-friction operation, absolute repeatability, and requires little maintenance. But it’s an air bearing’s

Why a Solutions Engineering Approach is Critical for Precision Motion Systems

From aerospace to medical devices, to additive manufacturing, some of the most challenging precision manufacturing environments depend on motion solutions such as air bearings to deliver extraordinary, sub-micron-level accuracies and near-perfect repeatability.

But every precision motion challenge is not created equal!
