Motion Control


NB Corp. of America Since its establishment in 1939, Nippon Bearing has been a pioneer of linearmotion product manufacturing. Established in 1987, NB Corp. of America’s Chicago location was the first overseas office for the company. Today, NB Corp. of America operates an ever-expanding sales network as well as offices on the East and West coasts.

Linear-motion components are core to the design of machinery. They use

sliding and rolling motion to carry loads and guide linear axes.

One new offering from NB Corp. of America is a linear bearing called the

eXrail. This linear guide rail uses recirculating needle rollers to support loads over linear strokes. It’s useful in applications needing high precision (such as medical equipment, for example) thanks to high rigidity and motion accuracy — as well as the ability to damp vibrations.

Detailed product drawings and tables that provide dimensional and mechanical information can be found at or through the NB Linear Mobile App. NB products are designed to be interchangeable with competing brands and come in Inch Standard
