How are Danaher Thomson Nyliner bearing products used in rotational speed applications? Thomson Nyliner bearings are the ideal alternative to sintered bronze or other metal replacement in high rotational speed applications. Injection molded from quality engineered thermoplastics, our bearings eliminate stick slip and metal on metal contact allowing smooth, accurate, low friction rotary, linear or oscillating motion. Several different basic straight journal and flanged types of bearings are available in a wide range of sizes for immediate shipments.

We receive many questions about ourThomson Engineered Polymers (TEP). The beauty of this material is that it eliminates the need for grease or a secondary oiling process. The material used in nyliners is just as important as the design. Our TEP’s are tough, resilient, water-resistant plastics that provide our customers with low coefficient of friction with-out any secondary lubrication.
