Developing oil-free, ultra high-speed turbomachinery employing compliant foil air bearing technologies.


Expanded Product Lines

We have expanded our capabilities to include the design of centrifugal compressors, volutes and diffusers, as well as turbine nozzles for radial inflow and axial turbines.


Patented Technology

Each custom machine uses 4th Generation compliant foil bearings. These self-acting hydrodynamic bearings operate without an externally pressurized air source, require no supporting lubrication system, and have no known speed limit.


Environmentally Conscious

We have developed a family of CleanTech, high efficiency, oil-free turbomachinery products that include renewable energy turbogenerators, oil-free turbo gen-sets, industrial compressors, blowers and electric motors.

Company Overview

Mohawk Innovative Technology is a product and R&D company specializing in integrating our advanced foil bearings, oil-free bearings and foil seals into high speed rotating machinery, such as gas turbine engines, turbochargers, compressors, cryogenic pumps and any system with speed and temperature requirements that exceed the capabilities of rolling element bearings. We provide full service engineering to our customers from concept inception to final product qualification testing. We also conduct advanced research and development in the fields of biotechnology, tribology and high temperature coatings.

Our History

Established in 1994, Mohawk Innovative Technology, Inc. (MITI) is the world’s leading authority in developing oil-free, high-speed turbomachinery employing compliant foil air bearing technologies.  We develop CleanTech, high efficiency, oil-free rotating machinery products that include renewable energy turbogenerators, oil-free turbocompressors/blowers and electric motors.
Each of our novel, made in the USA products combine high power density and high-speed permanent magnet motor elements, advanced Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) and MiTi’s patented and world-leading, 4th Generation, oil-free compliant foil bearings.
Besides achieving high efficiency, MiTi’s oil-free systems offer substantial environmental benefits by eliminating hazardous waste oil disposal concerns and lubricating oil spills.  MiTi oil-free system designs result in durable machines with low operating and maintenance costs.
MiTi stands ready to lead the way into the future by enabling a new and exciting class of machines that will be smaller, more capable and more efficient.
