OAV Air bearing is committed to providing their customers with the most precise bearing systems available.
Advancing technologies have led to major breakthroughs in existing industries and given way to new, emerging markets. These developments have increased the need for precision tools and equipment, fuelling the demand for precision bearing systems.
The error motion of bearings with mechanical contact are dominated by the geometric and surface finish errors of their components. OAV Air Bearings however, do not have mechanical contact between elements and benefit from an air-film averaging effect. Furthermore, due to an absence of mechanical contact, the OAV Air Bearing has virtually no friction to generate heat and cause wear.
OAV Air Bearings was founded as a division of Aviation Company. Today, the company is still in ownerâ€™s hand and under owner management and is located in Princeton, NJ.
Through recent technical advances, Air bearings offer inherent advantages over traditional bearings as well as create opportunity for a much broader range of applications. But OAV Air bearings offer more: integrated Air bearings, Aerospace materials and standardization of product and proven performance in the most demanding applications.
