The science of photonics includes the emission, transmission, amplification, detection, and modulation of light. The manufacture of photonic devices requires the alignment of components that transmit signals by light through fiber optic cables. Best suited to laser technology, photonics applications include laser welding and marking of packages, transmitters, receivers, and passive devices.
Advances in photonics technology mean that today's industrial laser systems offer unparalleled capabilities in precision manufacturing and advanced materials processing. The Boca Bearing Company provides solutions for the photonics manufacturing industry by offering ceramic bearings that are non-magnetic, non-corrosive, non-conductive, and extremely low friction. Ceramic hybrid and full ceramic bearings are being used in some of today's most demanding manufacturing environments and product designs.
- Non-magnetic, non-corrosive, non-conductive
- Requires little to no lubricant
- Never a Minimum Order
- Inventory Available Today
Ceramic bearings are suitable for use in many specialty applications seeking to reduce conductivity, magnetism, overall weight and rolling resistance. Ceramic bearings are also ideal for extremely harsh environments where high temperatures and corrosive substances are present. Because ceramic is non-porous it has an extremely low coefficient of friction and requires little to no lubricant which means they are appropriate for clean room environments.
