Years of Experience
Since 1922 our company has been gaining experience and knowledge in the ball industry as well as in its various industrial applications. Marteau Lemarié provides balls for a wide range of fields: the automobile industry, aeronautic sector, cosmetic area, but also chemical and mechanical domains. Our precision balls are used in a multitude of ways: safety valves, check valves, ball-point pens, balls used for sliding and rolling applications, and so on.
A Full Product Range
Thanks to partnerships with the top industrial ball factories in the world, we are able to offer a full range of all the different industrial balls that can be found on the market.
The best Partners
Our partnerships are carefully chosen for their capability and product quality as well as for their competitiveness. We evaluate them on a regular basis and require them to be certified by the International Organization of Standardization, as stated in the Quality Management System Standard document 9001: 2008.
Our ability to cater for a wide demand allows us to be always more competitive in challenging markets such as the automobile industry as well as to keep the quality of our products.
A huge stock
In addition to special and open orders, we have over 2500 standard balls of different types and sizes in stock.
A Well-known Quality
All the balls we sell are produced in accordance with the standards required by the Deutsches Institut für Normung (DIN), Anti-Friction Bearing Manufacturers Association (ABMA) and International Organization of Standardization (ISO). Our quality assurance is also certified by the International Organization of Standardization, Standard 9001: 2008 by Bureau Veritas.
Our precision balls range is huge. Balls are made from various raw materials: steel, stainless steel, tungsten carbide, plastic, ceramic and glass balls … Their applications are limitless.
Concerning crushing or polishing balls, we keep in stock mainly steel, stainless steel and glass balls but we can also mainly special demand in ceramic. There tolerances are much larger compared to precision balls and they are sold per weight.
Our range of polishing and grinding balls is completed by satellites and ballcones . Their application is very close to polishing and grinding balls and even sometime used simultaneously with polishing balls in rotary drums.
Ballcones and satellites are only available in steel and AISI 420 or 304 stainless steel. The standard dimensions are 3×5, 5×5 or 5×7. They also are sold by weight, like the polishing balls.
Needles and rollers are mainly used in bearings as rolling parts to transmit couple and avoid friction. Needles can be used as precision axis or even as polishing parts and are both made from steel and stainless steel.
Plastic hollow balls are made from two heated half spheres. Tolerances are wide and applications mostly in baths and swimming pools to limit air exchange.
