Vee Jewel for ohmmeters, voltmeters, gauges, compasses, timers, relays, and other indicating meters
  • Extremely durable with exceptional strength and wear resistance
  • Outstanding thermal conductivity and resistance to high temperatures
  • Exceptional chemical stability
  • Wide transmission bandwidths from UV to IR
  • Available in blank substrates, AR-coated pieces, and precision windows
  • Vee Jewel bearings are ideal for precision instruments needing low torque and lightweight moving components. They minimize friction when paired with conical pivots, requiring a highly polished pivot contact area..

    Common applications include ohmmeters, voltmeters, ammeters, gauges, compasses, relays, contacts, timers, tuning mechanisms, rotational display devices, temperature controllers, clocks, gas meters, and more.

    Vee Jewels are ideal for delicate instruments with lightweight moving parts. They offer minimal friction when paired with small conical pivots and allow for slight lateral movement. To ensure low friction torque, sensitivity, and resistance to deformation, the jewel radius should be three times larger than the pivot radius. It's recommended to have a highly polished contact area for the pivot and a micro-inch finish of 2 or better on the pivot radius.

    Typical applications include ohmmeters, voltmeters, gauges, compasses, timers, relays, and other indicating meters.

  • Vee jewels feature a flat side with a vee on the opposite side, offering minimal friction when
  • combined with small conical pivots allowing slight lateral movement. Common applications
  • include various measuring instruments like timers, relays, ohmmeters, voltmeters, and gauges.
  • Custom dimensions and tolerances are available upon request.
