Rotary Unions & Slip Rings

Thin Section Bearings Designed for Rotary Unions and Slip Rings

When space is an issue, thin section bearings are a go-to solution. Slim Section Bearings manufactures quality thin section bearings built to succeed in demanding environments for rotary unions and slip rings.

Quality Thin Section Bearings for Designs with Space Constraints

When there isn’t much room to work with, it’s crucial to invest in parts that can pack plenty of power into small packages. SSB offers both standard and custom thin section bearings that can meet your exact design requirements and thrive in demanding environments.

From oil and gas to condensation and moisture, bearings used in rotary unions and slip rings must be able to operate effectively despite challenging environments. Our team can identify or design customized bearings with a variety of materials, seals, and other solutions to prevent corrosion and other factors that would shorten the lifespan of your parts. In addition, SSB can also work with you to identify other potential part needs to match your performance needs. Potential modifications include:

  • Internal geometry design variations (Radial, Angular, 4 Point Contact)
  • Base materials and coatings (TDC, MoS2, WS2, TiN, etc.)
  • Variety of cross sections
  • Special lubricants and NBR or Teflon sealing options
  • Nylon, Phenolic, Brass, or other separator options

The space saving benefits of our bearings can help slip ring products work across a multitude of applications. No matter what you need, we can address your bearing needs for a wide variety of robotics applications.
