Sports, Recreation & Hobby

Bearings play a huge role in the function of many of the parts in the sports, recreation, & hobby industries. Whether it is fishing reels, bicycles, RC cars and planes, or any other item that uses bearings, MMB is here to help with your bearing needs. We are an authorized stocking distributer for NMB Bearings. This gives us a huge advantage over other bearing companies. We stock large quantities of miniature and instrument bearings. We also have full ceramic or hybrid bearings. These bearings are lighter, produce less friction, and require less grease and maintenance making these ideal for this industry. We also carry non-contact shields to help against friction.

Our Supply

Instrument Miniature Ball Bearings- Although these are two different categories, they are generally the same. The miniature bearing must fall within a specific size to qualify as a miniature bearing. The instrument bearing does not have to fall within a specific size range but covers a lot of the miniature bearings. The instrument bearings must be ABEC 5 or greater and have specific characteristics that miniature bearings are not required to have. These include having uniform running torque, smooth operation and limits on the amount of vibration, a definite contact angle or preload (or both), and these are required to have very high cleanliness standards.

Radial Ball Bearings- Radial ball bearings perform well in dirty environments and need very little service. These bearings are very useful in high-speed applications. MMB stocks several clearance options (C0-C5), rubber sealed(2RS), metal shielded (ZZ), and open types of these bearings. These can come with a standard set of balls or max type set. There are different options of food-grade grease that MMB can provide for these bearings.

Hybrid/Ceramic- Most bearing sizes can be ordered in hybrid/ceramic.
