Product Announcement from RBC Bearings
RBC Thin Section Ball Bearings are engineered to solve a variety of design problems that cannot be solved with conventional ball bearings. A bearing is considered a thin section bearing when the bore diameter is greater than four times the radial cross section. Within any thin section bearing series, the cross section remains constant as the bore diameter changes. Typically the cross section is twice the ball diameter, and nominal dimensions are given in inches.
Some advantages of RBC Thin Section Ball Bearings are:
• Light weight
• High stiffness
• Small cross section
• Multi-load capabilities
• Variety of cross sections & sizes
• Modified & custom bearings
RBC Thin Section Ball Bearings are most often found where space limitations, combined loading, and weight restrictions pose unique design requirements.
RBC also designs and manufactures special Thin Section Ball Bearings tailored for specific applications.
RBC has implemented a total quality control system that uses statistical quality control at all facilities, and manufactures in high volume to a just-in-time program.
To serve the ongoing needs of customers, RBC has a network of over 1,600 distributors and sales engineers throughout the US, Europe, and South America, with authorized agents worldwide.
