Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing Announces the Addition of Two Miniature Thrust Ball Bearing Series

Macedon, NY– (February 12, 2019)– Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing is excited to announce the addition of two miniature thrust ball bearing series, the F series and the FM series, to its trusted line of thrust bearing products. These two lines of miniature ball thrust bearings are made with high precision and can accommodate axial loads in a single direction only. The only difference between the two series’ lies in their raceway; the F series is designed with flat raceways, while the FM series is designed with grooved raceways which accommodate similar applications that require larger speed and load ratings.

The miniature thrust bearings found in these bearing series are typically manufactured in SAE 52100 chrome steel, and are available in bore sizes as small as 2 mm and as large as 18 mm and race ODs as small as 6 mm and as large as 20 mm. Upon request, ABM can manufacture these bearings in stainless steel or other materials. ABM also supports modification of these bearings to accommodate customer’s custom design and special dimension requirements. Common applications for these bearing series include medical devices, miniature machines, and jacks.
