Boca Bearing Company is expanding its product line to include bearings and lubricants suitable for the Robotics, Automation, and Advanced Manufacturing industries. Boca Bearings carries a large stock of standard bearings, ceramic hybrid bearings, full ceramic bearings and specialty lubricants. Boca Bearings has over 7,000 bearing sizes and over 7 million bearings in stock and ready to ship. Therefore, the company is capable of fast order fulfillment during these times of global supply chain delays.

Boca Bearings ceramic bearings can be used in varieties of manufacturing environments ranging from extreme temperatures, to high speeds, and heavy loads. Full Ceramic bearings can be used in robotic applications underwater, in vacuums, in caustic environments, and even in space. Ceramic bearings are non-magnetic, non-conductive, non-corrosive, and can operate without lubrication. Ceramic hybrid ball bearings use steel races and ceramic balls. Ceramic balls weigh up to 40% less than steel balls. This reduces centrifugal loading and skidding, so hybrid ceramic bearings can operate up to 50% faster than conventional bearings. The lighter ball allows the bearing to spin faster, and uses less energy to maintain its speed.

Boca Bearings has a full range of bearings and balls in a variety of materials such as stainless steel, alumina oxide ceramic, silicon nitride ceramic and heavy duty plastics. The wide array of features of full ceramic and ceramic hybrid bearings allows for application flexibility. Engineers can upgrade and downgrade machines, seamlessly integrating them into different production lines without long waiting times, maintenance, and without production down times. Deep groove bearings, angular contact bearings, mounted units, and self-aligning bearings are just some of the styles available in Full Ceramic and Ceramic Hybrid versions. Additionally, bearing configurations can often be tailored to fit each application comprising variations of materials for races, retainers and balls as well as specialty lubrications and coatings.

Boca Bearing Company is one of the most trusted names in ceramic bearing technology. The reduction of rolling resistance and conservation of energy has been our hallmark since 1987. Boca Bearings never has a minimum order and is a one stop shop for everything from prototyping to production. Whether you are looking for affordability, longevity or high speed, Boca Bearings has just the bearing for you. Wholesale discounts are available upon request.
