Kashima Bearings, Inc. produces unique plastic ball bearings and bushings. Plastic bearings are used in special conditions where the metal bearings are not suitable. Metal bearings normally require lubricants like grease or oil in order to avoid seizure and rust. Plastic bearings, on the other hand, have a self-lubricating property and hardly ever experience seizure or rust. Also, plastic bearings ignore magnetic fields and they can be used in the equipment like MRIs. Plastic bearings also have strong resistance to chemical changes, so they do not corrode if they are exposed to chemicals. And these are only a few of the advantages that plastic bearings have to offer. Get in touch with us to find out more!
We machine our bearings, and machining allows us to offer a greater range of plastic materials suitable for a variety of conditions. It means that we can deal with not only the standard sizes but also custom bearings without making expensive molds. If you ever have had any problems with metal bearings, please visit our booth!
