What is Hybrid Bearing?

Typical hybrid bearings consist of steel raceways, a retainer, a lubricant and ceramic balls.

Hybrid bearings can achieve higher speeds, greater accuracies, and have a longer service life than steel bearings which is why hybrid bearings are finding increased usage in a wide variety of engineered applications today.
