We, at Miniature Balls, have been manufacturing bearing balls since our inception. Plain bearings typically handle only lower speeds, rolling element bearings are faster, followed by fluid bearings and finally magnetic bearings which are limited ultimately by centripetal force overcoming material strength. Watch makers produce “jeweled” watches using sapphire plain bearings to reduce friction thus allowing more precise time keeping. Precision ball bearings are used to reduce friction in every rotating parts of automobiles, machine tools and others. Thin bearings facilitate design downsizing and weight saving. Ball bearings will be used for many years to come, because they are very simple and have become very inexpensive to manufacture. The race contains the bearings, and as one of the objects that rest on the bearing moves, the balls rotate, allowing for the near frictionless encounter between the borne object and the bearing.

Ceramic materials are also popular for the construction of ball bearings, though ceramic materials usually do not feature the same high qualities of strength as steel. McCarty, Lyle H. “New Alloy Produces Quieter Ball Bearings,” Design News. Schaeffler’s data is useful because it shows how small the potential gain by switching from steel to ceramic bearings is. The maximum improvement is a potential 3%. In practice, rolling friction cannot be eliminated so the likely figure is more like 10% of the 3% ie 0.3%. However, some applications integrate the properties of high fatigue and corrosion resistance by using chrome-coated bearings made of the standard SAE 52100 steel 4. Bearings are often specified to give an “L10” life (outside the USA, it may be referred to as “B10” life.) This is the life at which ten percent of the bearings in that application can be expected to have failed due to classical fatigue failure (and not any other mode of failure like lubrication starvation, wrong mounting etc.), or, alternatively, the life at which ninety percent will still be operating. Our Steel Balls are available in different specifications as per the requirement.
