Vibration Dampening Plastic Spherical Bearings

Product Announcement from Stock Drive Products & Sterling Instrument - SDP/SI


SDP/SI – Stock Drive Products/Sterling Instrument, a leader in providing mechanical based design, engineering and manufacturing services for critical motion control applications has expanded their product offering with the introduction of a new series of Plastic Spherical Bearings. “Many times plastic components are seen as inferior to metal,” explained Application Engineer, Cris Ioanitescu, “but often they are the best and most economical option for an application, especially where lubricated metal bearings are not suitable.”

Made of wear-resistant polymer and shock-resistant reinforced plastic, these bearings are lightweight, vibration dampening and provide excellent performance in moisture, chemicals and dusty environments. Strong and durable, they have a high strength-to-weight ratio and long service life. The spherical bearings, S99GSB-… inch series and S99GSBM-... metric series, are offered for shaft sizes: 3/16” – 1/2" and 2 mm – 12 mm, are maintenance free, requiring no lubrication and cost effective. The two-part design allows the spherical ball to pivot within the housing, offering many design advantages.

SDP/SI offers a wide variety of inch and metric small mechanical components for the design engineer and OEM. Standard components can easily be located and purchased in one convenient place, shop online 24/7. The engineer not only meets all his component requirements, but saves valuable time by not having to search other sources.
