Bont partnered with Jesa for their high end bearings. Jesa is the largest specialty bearing manufacturer in Switzerland producing premium bearings since 1969. Jesa is renowned for providing solutions for some of the most difficult applications, Jesa don’t make any standard bearings, they make specialty bearings.
To meet Bont requirements, Jesa has produced a bearing with the lowest friction on the market. They made the bearing with an exceptionally fine polished surface finish and incredibly precise balls. In addition, light weight plastic cages also create lower resistance.
Under load and at speed, cheaper bearings can warp. This warping slows the bearings down. Bont Jesa bearings are made from high grade hardened steel which work to keep the bearing as round as possible.
Most bearings are quickly polished in one direction to remove any metal fragments left behind in the manufacturing process. Bont Jesa bearings are finely polished in both directions to ensure the balls roll with the least amount of friction possible.
