Spherical Air Bearing Demonstration

POSTED 06/06/2019

These bearings are often used for zero-gravity simulation in satellite research and testing. Other applications include precision optical alignment, precision spindle alignment and semiconductor chip bonding. PI spherical air bearings provide all three rotational degrees of freedom with virtually frictionless motion, combining high load capacity and stiffness
