Knowledge Center

Welcome to NHBB's repository for bearing engineering reference information and technical data. We make it available to assist our customers in specifying the right bearing for your new design project.

Engineering Reference

We've organized the engineering reference information related to our products into four broad repositories. The first three sections cover a range of topics related to our precision rolling element and plain bearings and contain detailed information about materials, components, lubrication, load calculations, installation, and more. The fourth selection is linked to the full catalog of airframe control ball bearings. This document includes the engineering tables on all of the AFCB series as well as brief information about the general standards associated with this product family.

Downloadable Resources

This page is the repository for our downloadable product brochures, design guides, and technical datasheets, as well as select promotional videos. Other downloadable documents include quality & environmental certifications and Nadcap accreditations for each manufacturing division as well as corporate policy statements. 

Bearing Design and Engineering Support

If you need assistance with designing a bearing solution for your aerospace, medical, or high tech application, we're here to help. Submit your technical questions by using the form located on the Technical Support page. 

Bearing Tech Blog

This new section of our website contains brief articles about advancements in bearing technology. Like most blogs, the subjects are organized by categories, enabling you to explore all blog posts related to a particular topic by selecting a specific topic.

White Papers

The Vertical Flight Society Forum 73 conference paper, “Wear Sensors for Pitch Control Bearing Condition Based Maintenance,” is available for download. The content on this page requires users to fill in a registration form provided before downloading a copy of the document.
