Bal-tec™ manufactures custom-made balls of any material, any size, any quality, and any quantity. We make steel balls and stainless steel balls as well as a wide range of more exotic materials. With over 50,000 square-feet of manufacturing facilities housing state-of-the-art equipment, we have the ability to meet all your spherical needs from one-off prototypes to millions in quantity.

At Bal-tec™, quality is of the utmost concern. We use the Talyrond System to measure sphericity of balls. The overall accuracy of this system is one-millionth of an inch.

The size of balls are measured using a Heidenhain Certo 60 to an accuracy of 10-millionths of an inch and is calibrated using standards traceable to NIST.

Most balls are produced to the Anti-Friction Bearing Manufacturers Association (A.F.B.M.A. Book 10), military specifications, or our customers' needs.

Bal-tec™ stocks over 40,000 different sizes, grades and materials of balls.

Bal-tec™ manufactures Ball Bars, Probe Characterization Spheres, C.M.M. Pallet Systems, and a full line of measuring and calibration-related products.
