The UNASIS precision optical bearing team is located close to Oxford, which is in the midst of a highly-technological cluster including nuclear, motorsport, defence, hospital, and aerospace industries. No matter what the bearing is for, UNASIS bearings provide optimum performance whilst saving space and weight. Our bearings also offer unmatched precision that is critical for the accurate position of optical devices. Our bearings allow customers in a wide variety of industries to realise their objectives more clearly.

UNASIS thin-section bearings for optical applications can be found in a wide range of optical applications within the movie industry, and have been used to film airborne, battlefield, and underwater shots via optical tracking and target designators in the latest blockbuster movies. Our bearings are also used in the medical and defence industry including in laser rangefinders and designators. UNASIS’ expert engineers can deliver precision internal preload values that can be supported to achieve superbly accurate torque and stiffness requirements.


UNASIS bearings for optics have a large bore with a uniquely thin cross section, allowing super smooth movement alongside absolute precision from small spaces. The size of the bore allows designers to thread cables through bearing centres, saving valued space and aids in delivering lighter, smaller and compact designs. Optical bearings can be made using ceramic, steel, or hybrid bearings. At UNASIS we can help you decide what material will best suit your requirements to provide the best possible performance.


UNASIS Bearings has a vast network of distributors to reach all corners of the globe. No matter where you are, you will get the best service to go along with the best bearings.
