NB Corporation of AmericaLinear Bearings For Precise Motion Control

Since 1939, NB has emerged as the leading manufacturer of high quality linear motion products in Japan. Their growth can be attributed to unique product designs, attention to detail and fresh approaches to meeting linear motion needs.

NB Linear Systems are linear motion mechanisms using the recirculating movement of ball or roller elements to provide smooth and accurate linear travel. All products are designed to minimize size and weight while providing superior performance in high-precision equipment. NB’s product quality is unsurpassed. The products are characterized by low friction and low noise and are available as total systems or as individual components.
