Safety and Security Applications

emergency ball bearing


KMS polymer race bearings, made from engineering-grade polymers and 316 stainless steel, can run in environments without the worry of corrosion or lubrication. KMS polymer materials have low water absorption and offer good wear properties for long life.


KMS produces plastic race radial ball bearings featuring  ball bearingTrue Race Technology™. KMS employs custom automated speed lathes to the machine in the ball grooves. This removes any molding imperfections and produces a deep ball groove radius that is consistent and concentric for optimum bearing performance and life.

A combination of the right materials and True Race Technology™ bearing design delivers superior performance and life. Our ability to mold in value-added mounting features can optimize your bearing design!
