Mounting Blocks

New Way Air Bearings ® now offers in-house produced mounting blocks to go along with our cylindrical air bushings. These complementary products make installation and retrofitting a breeze for any customers considering the upgrade from traditional rotary or reciprocating ball bearing technology to a non-contact solution.

Our mounting blocks are produced in-house and with the same precision you’ve come to know and expect from all other New Way products. Anodized for durability and resiliency, these blocks are available in a variety of sizes (with custom solutions available to suit your needs) and support a wide range of air bushing products.

The mounting blocks are designed for easy installation and integration of its respective air bushing. Once the air bushing has been inserted into the inner diameter of the pillow block, supply air at 40-100 psi into the pillow block and insert the shaft into the bushing. With the shafts inserted through the bushings and air pressure on, secure the shafts into their end mounts and use gauge blocks to ensure parallelism between your shafts. Once the shafts have been secured and parallelism confirmed, you can secure your top plate to the pillow blocks. The O rings on the outer diameter of the bushings compensate for errors in parallelism and for added compliance, the bushings may be potted to the pillow block by injecting epoxy into the space between the O rings via pre drilled holes in the blocks.

Should you need to constrain one end of your system axially, our mounting blocks also support thrust bushings, which operate and install in an identical fashion to air bushings.

Mounting blocks are available to support both English and metric air bushings and can be customized for your exact needs!
