The Astounding Linear Air Bearings
Linear Motion Bearings
The utilization of the most basic element in our world for something other then breathing is amazing in and of itself. The fact that it has been manipulated to create toxin free energy is pretty amazing too. So linear air bearings, which use a film of compressed air as a cushion in between two objects that need free movement in one direction while also supporting varieties of weight, is straight up astounding. We as humans are able to harness the air that surrounds us at all times in such a way that multiple industries are able to move parts without friction, which reduces high maintenance fees as well as prolonging the life of the product or machine being moved.
Most linear bearings, such as linear ball bearings or slide bearings, must deal with some measure of friction, even if it is a small amount. This is what makes the linear air bearing to astounding. It completely reduces the possibility of friction building up between the two moving parts because the compressed air keeps the material elements from touching at all. The shape and style of a linear air bearing varies depending on the application it is being applied to, which is wide since this is one of the most long-term affordable investments on the linear bearings market.
The medical industry as well as manufacturing, scientific research, furniture building, automotive, and chemical and engineering industries are all included in the list of linear air bearing users. They are also one of the few linear bearing models able to be present in clean rooms for whatever movement purpose, since no lubricants are necessary for smooth and precise motion that will also be in no danger of overheating since no friction builds up. The varieties of metals and plastics that are therefore able to be used in these contexts are wider and based more on strength and endurance then how well they will move against another material. Stainless steel, ceramic, aluminum and bronze are all commonly found in linear air bearing construction.
