As the world’s largest manufacturer of rod ends, spherical bearing, bushings and roller bearings, and with a global market share of approximately 60%, is not hard to see why Minebea is the strategic supplier to all the major aircraft manufacturers in the world.

Materials are carefully selected and combined based on several requirements, including safety and resistance, operating conditions and cost. High strength stainless steel, bronze, aluminum or titanium are some of the materials required for applications such as landing gears as well as flaps for military and civil aircraft, as well as high speed trains, trams, auto racing and industrial products.

Using 3-D CAD -and finite-element programs our engineers develop standard parts as well as the most complex bearing-systems according to customer requirements. All our production facilities have obtained common international approvals, including MIL standards and certifications, as well as most common European aircraft standards.
