Safety

The applications discussed throughout our website or in our publications do not constitute a warranty that a Professional Instruments Company air bearing is suited to a specific customer application. The user must determine whether the bearing is the right choice for a particular job. We encourage the potential user to consult our engineering staff.

Air bearings in general require standards of handling which exceed those normally accepted with sleeve and anti-friction bearings. An air bearing is not recommended unless the benefits merit the extra effort and learning process required. In suitable applications, Professional Instruments Company air bearings achieve levels of accuracy which are otherwise unattainable.

High-speed or high-inertia spindle applications require rotor containment. Maximum speed is dependent on application. Consult Professional Instruments Company for further information with regard to speed.
