Pad Bearings

Overview

Team hydrostatic pad bearings are used to guide and restrain large packages during vibration testing. These unique bearings form a hydrostatic oil film between a working surface on the package or fixture, and the "pad" of the bearing surface interface. Team hydrostatic pad bearings are extremely stiff, providing the high level of restraint required to keep cross-axis motion to a minimum. When used in conjunction with a 3,000 psi (206 bar) oil supply, Team hydrostatic pad bearings are friction free and require almost no maintenance.

Specialty pad bearings with larger force ratings and greater angular rotations may be available depending upon your application requirements.
