Kashima Bearings, Inc. offers high-quality bearings made from 7 kinds of plastic, 5 of which injection-molding companies cannot use. Plus, we can craft a huge range of shapes, sizes and types in all of our materials.
Based on decades of expertise and know-how, we offer the optimum combination of bearing type and materials that take advantage of the unique characteristics of each to match your environment and conditions for maximum effectiveness and cost-savings.
See below for the characteristics of each material. Please contact us for free consultation for those of you who wish to ensure you are ordering the perfect material for your environment and needs.
