Minebea Introduces High Corrosion Resistant Miniature Bearings Giga Protection
Adopting materials with superior resistance to rust and corrosion, the Giga Protection bearings , or GP bearings, will range in size from 15mm or less in outside diameter and are suited for comparatively low load bearing applications. This new bearing series is ideal for use in harsh environments where equipment is to be exposed to salt and sea water, wind, rain and or chemical compounds.
Generally the corrosion resistance enhancement process for stainless steel requires assembling components after giving special surface modification treatment. However, this process is time-consuming. Compared with ordinary stainless steel bearings, the GP bearings improve the corrosion resistance and most importantly, the bearings do not require any special processes in which deformation or malfunction of components tends to occur.
About NMB – NMB, a Minebea Group Company, is the world’s largest manufacturer of miniature precision ball bearings and a volume leader in the design and manufacturing of precision electro-mechanical components, including cooling fans, precision small motors and mechanical bearing assemblies, among others.
