Ball Mounting Screws


Ball Mounting Screws

New Way® Air Bearings offers stainless steel ball mounting screws to simplify air bearing mounting. The gimballed design provides great flexibility in tolerance, ensuring the bearing face remains parallel with your guide surface.

With a variety of standard round and flat end configurations, New Way offers cost-effective mounting solutions when compared with designs requiring precision machining to bolt in place. The threaded ball studs also make alignment and adjustments straightforward. Our point-mounted design ensures no deflection of the bearing under load.

Round End

Mounted from the bottom up, New Way round end ball mounting screws are ideal for configurations not limited in z height. Round end ball mounts are able to accommodate an optional retaining clip, ideal for applications where the carriage/slide needs to be moved. The retaining clip secures the bearings to the mount, though still allowing the bearings to gimble.

Flat End

Flat end ball mounting screws offer mounting/access from both sides of the bearing, ideal for configurations which may be space-constrained. If necessary, bearings can be readily swapped out or replaced by backing off the ball studs and slipping the bearing out.
