About our Thrust Bearings

Steel thrust bearings have the disadvantages of higher weight, more friction, are susceptible to corrosion and produce more noise than comparable plastic bearings. Plastic thrust bearings can be molded in any shape to meet your specific engineering requirements.

Current customer applications include:

  • Point of purchase displays
  • Metering equipment
  • Light duty wood working machinery
  • Remote controlled cars and airplanes
  • Hydraulic valves
  • Office equipment
  • Fishing reals and down riggers
  • Blowers and fans
  • Pressure gauges
  • Light industrial machinery
  • Dairy equipment
  • Swivel tables
  • Printing equipment
  • Pumps
  • Surgical tools and equipment

At Torque Transmission we combine high-grade balls with the self-lubricating property of nylon to reduce friction, reduce noise and increase durability. Our molding process yields thrust bearings that are very resistant to wear. These are the most economical longest lasting thrust bearings on the market today!  We offer both OEM and quantity discounts on all of our products.

We manufacture high quality thrust bearings in a wide range of sizes - standard, metric and custom dimensions - to meet your specific application. Now available in 2" through 5" I.D. Contact us with your custom Thrust Bearing needs.
