Put our foil bearings to work for you.

Air and process gas lubricated foil bearings can operate under the most demanding system requirements. They allow very high shaft surface speeds which can allow you to reduce machine size and improve rotor dynamics. These high-performance bearings are suitable for many high-speed applications up to 500 kW or fewer.

Xdot Air and Process Gas Lubricated Foil Bearings can help you design a faster, cleaner, more efficient machine for your application.
