Advancing technologies have led to major breakthroughs in existing industries and given way to new, emerging markets.
These developments have increased the need for precision tools and equipment, fuelling the demand for precision bearing systems.
The error motion of bearings with mechanical contact are dominated by the geometric and surface finish errors of their components.
OAV Air Bearings however, do not have mechanical contact between elements and benefit from an air-film averaging effect. Furthermore, due to an absence of mechanical contact, the OAV Air Bearing has virtually no friction to generate heat and cause wear.
OAV Air Bearings was founded as a division of Aviation Company. Today, the company is still in owner's hand and under owner’s management and is located in Princeton, NJ.
