Timken has announced that it is expanding its offering of thin-section ball bearings to provide a standard line of bearings than can perform with greater precision and resist corrosion. Featuring a minimum precision level that meets ABEC 5 and ISO P5 standards for bearing tolerance, this series is designed for applications where smooth, consistent movement and compact bearing size are critical, such as precision robotics, satellite guidance systems, positioning-control mechanism and medical equipment. The bearings are available in sizes up to 300 mm (12 in.) outside diameter in both angular-contact and deep-groove designs, manufactured from chrome steel or 440C stainless steel to resist corrosion.
