Airframe Control Ball Bearings
Designed and built for reliable performance and great value.
Airframe control ball bearings were initially developed for aircraft flight control systems, and now many different industries utilize these products in applications featuring oscillating or limited rotation. What makes them ideal for such performance conditions is their low coefficient of friction and low torque characteristics.
Our product family includes a full range of choices in single- and double-row configurations as well as standard and precision grades. We manufacture and inspect these products per Aerospace Standards SAE AS7949 and standards set by the industry’s major OEMs.
- Single and double-row configurations
- Corrosion resistant platings or stainless steel rings
- PTFE shields & seals tolerant of hydraulic fluids, greases, solvents
- Precision-grade products for excellent radial and axial positioning

Bearing Customization and New Product Development
In addition to providing you with standard products, we can customize bearings to work outside the usual spectrum of load, temperature, corrosion resistance, and rotational speed. If you are designing a new aircraft subsystem, our product engineers can assist you with bearing selection, design, and engineering.
For heightened performance challenges, our applications engineering department may involve the New Product Development Center to identify and develop a unique solution.
