Ball bearings

So everything runs smoothly

Top-precision myonic ball bearings are used in the fields of medical, vacuum, food, aerospace and high-speed technology as well as in many other industrial applications.

Thanks to our many years of experience in the development and manufacture of ball bearings, we can offer the right bearing type and design for every application, even under extreme boundary conditions, and provide you with expert support in integrating them into your system.

Deep groove ball bearings

myonic miniature deep groove ball bearings are used in the fields of medical, vacuum, food, aerospace and high-speed technology as well as in many other industrial applications.
Deep groove ball bearings are mainly designed for radial loads, which means that they are primarily used to bear forces acting perpendicular to the axis of rotation.

In our catalogue you will find all the important information about our standard product range; in addition, we are also able to offer you complex system development services and assembly of components (under clean room conditions) in world-leading quality.

Angular contact bearings

myonic angular contact bearings can support both radial and axial loads.
The balls move in the raceway at a defined contact angle, which gives them the ability to absorb axial loads.

These bearings meet the highest requirements for accuracy, maximum permissible speed and life time. myonic angular contact bearings are available with steel and ceramic balls.
Ceramic balls have a lower density, which reduces the centrifugal forces as well as the friction in the bearing and thus increases the life time.

These bearings meet at least the tolerance class ISO P4 (ABEC 7) and are also available on request with even higher qualities up to myonic GYRO quality.

Axial ball bearings

Compared to radial deep groove ball bearings, axial bearings – also called axial deep groove ball bearings – are used exclusively to absorb forces in the axial direction, along the axis of rotation.

Our axial bearings are available in outer diameters from 5 to 50 mm. Designs with high-quality cages through to solid-ball bearings for the highest loads are available.


A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Even the best ball bearing cannot function properly if the installation conditions are not designed for it. High speed miniature ball bearings in particular must be safely protected against overloading or excessive clearance.

For this purpose, myonic offers the complete range of matching accessories, such as shims and spring washers, snap rings and bushings for optimum assembly.


1 million revolutions

In cooperation with the Leutkirch-based motor manufacturer ATE System and researchers from the ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology), myonic has cracked the magic speed limit of one million revolutions per minute. This is the highest speed ever achieved by an electric drive system.

In future, rotating applications will achieve ever higher speeds, e.g. drills in medical technology, spindles in materials processing and compressors in automotive technology.

In order to drive these directly, efficiently and in a controlled manner, electrical drive systems with appropriate speeds and power ratings will be necessary. Up to now, industrial motors have reached speeds of up to a maximum of 300,000 revolutions per minute.

myonic, ATE and the researchers at ETH Zurich have jointly developed a drive system that achieves speeds of over 1,000,000 revolutions per minute (16,667 revolutions per second) – that’s a world record!

It generates 100 watts of drive power and is barely bigger than a matchbox. The ball bearings are optimised for the highest speeds and the rotor construction has a titanium jacket that can withstand even extreme centrifugal forces. A low-friction bearing and a low-loss stator ensure maximum efficiency. This milestone in the development of rotational speeds opens a door to applications in previously unknown dimensions for potential users.
