Pacamor Kubar Bearings Introduces Extended Life Bearings for Dental Handpieces.

TROY, N.Y. -- Pacamor Kubar Bearings (PKB) has introduced new product enhancements extending bearing life in high speed and low speed dental and surgical handpieces. Pacamor Kubar Bearings, a respected name in bearings designed for high-speed medical and dental handpieces, worked with leading dental professionals to develop these improvements in its dental bearing product line.

The new extended life bearings include high quality stainless steel rings, new design features, and specialty component materials developed for dental bearing applications. The PKB extended-life bearing retainer offers self-lubricating and life-extending additives as an enhancement to their proven retainer design.

"Bearing life is a critical factor in the performance of a quality dental or medical handpiece," said Augustine Sperrazza, CEO. "Increasing the bearing life while maintaining a cost competitive position, coupled with prompt delivery, creates a total product package that is highly advantageous to today's medical tool developers and users."

PKB's team of bearing experts believes that all dental bearings should contain a minimum amount of lubricant to ensure optimum life and operational efficiency. Dental and medical bearings are supplied ready for use, lubricated with food-safe and autoclave resistant grease. Proper lubrication is essential to successful bearing performance in demanding applications and PKB uses only high quality, filtered lubricants in its antifriction bearings.

The team also acknowledges the realities of actual handling processes by users in the field. "We understand that sometimes handpieces just do not get proper care and maintenance in their daily use", illustrated Mike Selby, VP Operations. "Our goal is to provide a bearing that is forgiving under short term, lube starved conditions until proper maintenance is performed."

Bearing designs can be fully customized. From simple flanges, to intricate lubrication grooves and o-ring housings to new materials and designs, technical expertise is available to assist with design engineering for custom products.

The entire line of PKB products is available direct from the manufacturer by contacting 518-283-8002 ( or through PKB authorized distributors. Pacamor Kubar Bearings offers the right bearing at the right price for all your radial, miniature precision, and instrument applications.

Pacamor Kubar Bearings is a domestic manufacturer of high precision miniature and instrument bearings and offers over 40 years of expertise in radial ball bearings. Located in Troy, NY, Pacamor Kubar Bearings is one of the last American owned and operated precision miniature and instrument ball bearing manufacturers.
