The most common ball material used in ball bearings is stainless steel, but they can also be manufactured from silicon nitride ceramic, plastic or even glass. Spherical balls, while most commonly used in ball bearings, have more applications such as in freewheel mechanisms. Balls are responsible for the friction-free, precision rotary motion in machines, power tools, motors, power transmission and many more applications, so their reliability is critical to the application. BSC has an extensive variety of balls available at our branches. We source our products from leading suppliers, such as RGP Balls. Stainless steel balls, precision grade balls, chromium steel balls, carbon steel balls, ceramic balls and more are available at BSC stores. Contact us today to learn more.
