Ceramic ball bearings are currently gaining traction around the world as they are superior and more durable than stainless-steel bearings in various aspects. Ceramic ball bearings require less energy owing to their high speed that aids in reducing friction. Moreover, they also offer high dimensional stability; have smoother and rounder surfaces; and provide the low density and optimum resistance against heat and corrosion. Owing to these advantages offered by ceramic ball bearings, they are widely replacing conventional ball bearings in various applications. Nowadays, hybrid ceramic ball bearings are available in different sizes, specifically designed as per the requirement of the industry to minimize the risk of costly repairs and reduce operating costs.
Ceramic ball bearings are significantly lighter and harder compared to their metal counterparts. They do not rust and can self-lubricate and operate at faster speeds. Also, these ball bearings can tolerate intense physical impact and perform exceptionally well when subjected to harsh conditions such as in high corrosion environments, lack of lubrication and elevated temperatures. Other than this, they have excellent electrical insulation properties, which lessen the menace of electrical erosion and seizure of the rolling elements. Owing to this, these bearings are widely employed in passenger cars, commercial vehicles and numerous automobile components. Besides this, manufacturers have improved the performance of ball bearings by using the advanced seal, lightweight materials and lubrication technologies. These advancements have created vast opportunities for the leading players operating in the industry.
