Components

  • The New Way air bushing is designed to make air bearing technology readily available to engineers with pre-existing designs based on round shaft guides. These components run on standard precision steel shafting and are available in Metric or English sizes.

  • New Way Thrust bushings run on standard English precision steel shafting. These bushings are designed to allow for radial motion but constrain one end axially to prevent linear motion in one direction. 

     

     

  • New Way offers a line of modular air bearing components specifically designed to meet the non-contact glass-handling requirements of the Flat Panel Display and Solar Module manufacturing processes, including the new low-cost, high performance Transition Zone Air Bar.

  • The ideal components for building frictionless linear motion, New Way Flat Air Bearings were the original standard, off-the-shelf, porous media air bearing product line, developed by New Way in the 1980's. They are now available in round or rectangular configurations.

  • The ideal components for building frictionless rotary motion, New Way Radial Air Bearings provide a fast, made-to-order solution. In either concave or convex configurations, this new product line gives you all the differential advantages of New Way standard air bearings.

  • For applications where pre-loading is difficult or impossible, Vacuum Preloaded Air Bearings add vacuum to New Way Porous Media™ Technology. Simply then, these bearings hold themselves down while simultaneously lifting themselves from the guide surface
  • New Way Air Bearings® manufactures custom spherical air bearings ideal for use in aerospace and defense applications.These scalable components support a sphere on a thin layer of air, providing all the benefits of frictionless motion. A vacuum pre-load can also be added. The result is a whole new level of accuracy and control.
