EZO – Half a Century of Masterful Craft
Imagine a bearing with a 0.6mm bore diameter. Yes, so tiny. Can anyone produce it at all? And can they produce it so that it would be able to work reliably even at the incredible speed of 152,000 revolutions per minute, i.e. 2,533 revolutions (!) per second? Yes, they can do it.
Can you see the proportions? This can be accomplished only by the masters of the craft.
This specialist is the EZO company from the country of the rising sun. From the country where precision and the emphasis on quality have been handed down from generation to generation for centuries, starting with the ancient masters. Thanks to that, and more as well, today EZO miniature bearings are famous and well-known around the globe. For example, when you mention EZO at any RC model-makers' meeting, it is the same as mentioning sushi among cooks. In short, everyone knows immediately what it is all about.
EZO's headquarters are located in the north of Japan, no far from the capital of the island of Hokkaido.
Over the Years…
The company was established in 1969 in the town of Ashibetsu on the island of Hokkaido by Mr Eiichi Kobayashi. Since he approached his craft in an honest manner, the high-quality bearings from his workshops shortly gained fame near and far. As early as in 1977 he exported the first batch of his products to be sold in Europe and the US.
The company saw a gratifying growth and expansion and by 1981 built a new main factory and broadened its scope to produce precision steel balls as well as larger bearings. Another milestone in the history of EZO was the start of assembly of above-mentioned miniature bearings with the bore diameter designed to accommodate a miniature shaft 0.6mm. Today, the parent factory in Ashibetsu covers the area of 13 football pitches and its assembly halls fill almost the whole trading estate there.
Thanks to well considered long-term investments in modernisation and development, as well as in the protection of the environment and satisfaction of the employees, the EZO brand has worked its way up to become the world's leader in the production of miniature bearings. Step by step, by gradually building trust in the top quality.
Sapporo city where the EZO sales company Sapporo Precision Inc. is located.
At the moment, the company's state-of-the-art automatic lines produce 12 million EZO bearings per month and 75 out of every 100 sold miniature bearings all around the globe are products of EZO, ranging from the bore diameter accommodating shafts of 0.6mm to 90mm.
All the bearing types are made of vacuum degassed high carbon chromium steel, as well as stainless steel. The miniature bearings are produced by advanced machines capable of maintaining submicronic precision of processed materials. For this, the company received several top quality standard certificates in the world, for example the extremely exacting ISO/TS 16949.

Up to the Space!
The EZO bearings can be found in state-of-the-art devices and technologies. Thanks to them, your printing machine prints beautiful sharp photographs, and thanks to them, doctors using robotic arms can handle the most complicated surgeries. You can find them in audio and video equipment, in fishing spinning reels, in electric motors or dentist's drills.
The high efficiency, the low rolling friction, the low noise level and the long lifespan of EZO bearings are qualities expected by the producers of aircraft and automobiles; not only of those you use on your travels but also by the producers of RC scale models. The unparalleled quality is evidenced also by the fact that EZO bearings as part of cosmic craft have many times travelled in space.
