Precision Air Bearings, Stages, Components, & Frictionless Motion Systems
Trusted by the world's most recognized institutions and labs.
OAV was originally founded in 1964 with its main business being the manufacture of machine components. In later years OAV secured its position within the precision bearing industries, soon after developing the Thrust Air Bearing and Roller Air Bearing. In 2013, OAV entered the precision bearing market, and over time has developed a huge portfolio of frictionless air bearing products and transportation systems. OAV’s experience with aerospace, military specs, materials, and top engineers makes their product unmatchable.
Benefits of air bearing technology:
- Fully frictionless motion with possibility off infinite resolution
- High Accuracy at high speeds (no heat generation up to 140,000 RPM)
- Great solution for damping of mechanical noise/ reduced vibration/ resistant to Shock Loads
- High stiffness properties
- No maintenance is required/ self-lubricating material/ Indefinite Operating Life
- Easy Installation & can often replace conventional bearings
- Resistance to Dirt & corrosion resistant
