S205001S205001 – 50mm VPL Air Bearing


50mm VPL Air Bearing

The smallest of the New Way vacuum preloaded air bearing line, the 50mm size provides load-carrying capability with the flexibility to fit into the tightest designs. Because both the “x” and “y” axes can be supported by a single bearing plane, this VPL offers advantages that conventional air bearings cannot touch. It is also easy to apply, replace or change.
