Ceramic Dental Bearings

Ceramic Bearings are ideal product for dental handpieces, other medical devices and tools. They are superior to common steel bearings in many ways. Ceramic is the perfect material for any application seeking to achieve higher RPM’s, reduce overall weight or for extrem environment where corrosive substances are present.

Ceramic balls require less lubricant and have a greater hardness than steel balls which will contribute to increased bearing life. Thermal properties are better than steel balls resulting in less heat generation at high speeds.

Ceramic dental bearings use ceramic balls. They are constructed with steel inner and outer rings, but ceramic balls. Ceramic balls weigh up to 40% less than steel balls. This reduces centrifugal loading and so ceramic dental bearings can operate up to 50% faster than conventional bearings. This means that the outer race groove exerts less force against the ball as the bearing spins, this reduces the friction and rolling resistance. The lighter ball allows the bearing to spin faster, and uses less energy to maintain the speed.

Ceramic dental bearings combine ceramic rolling elements with precise steel rings. This hybrid combination provides superior ceramic performance at a cost-effective price. This design also enables ceramic dental bearings to deliver outstanding service life and operating characteristics.
