Ceramic Ball Bearings 

Timken® Fafnir® hybrid ball bearings combine ceramic rolling elements with superfinished steel rings. This “hybrid” combination provides superior ceramic performance at a cost-effective price. This design also enables ceramic bearings to deliver outstanding service life and operating characteristics at high spindle speeds.

Size range: 10 mm - 200 mm (0.3937 in. - 7.874 in.) bore
