KMS, a leader in the development and manufacturing of plastic and AISI 316 stainless raceway, radial ball bearings, is pleased to announce the availability of plastic race type bearings fitted with glass balls with a urethane tire for bearing wheel, the ideal choice for applications that require a non-magnetic, non-metallic solution, for non-marking bearing wheel applications.
The bearing design features polyester plastic races with a urethane tire mounted to the outer race. It is fitted with glass balls, which creates a total non-magnetic, non-metallic solution with complete MRI compatibility. Additionally, the urethane tire reduces noise, absorbs vibrations and is non-marking when used in MRI patient table rollers.
As a plastic race type bearing it features a low start up torque due to its lightweight nature and has the ability to run without lubrication. These bearings can be used in any application requiring non-magnetic, non-metallic compatibility, such as medical MRI, medical x-ray, security x-ray, and CAT scan equipment. The bearings also tolerate applications under water and in harsh environments.
"Previously MRI machines would use a plastic sleeve bushing type bearings to solve non-magnetic/metallic bearing issues," stated Bob Siets, Engineering Sales of KMS Bearings. "Our newly developed construction provides machine manufacturers with a non magnetic ball bearing that will enhance and improve the performance of the machine."
KMS non-magnetic bearings are available in custom configurations, giving engineers complete freedom to design the bearing around the device rather than attempting to design the device around a limited range of standard bearings. The KMS website provides all the tools necessary to help customers design or select the part they need. An example of one custom configuration can be found at:
