Bearings & Housing
Bearings are small, mechanical parts that allow machinery to move smoothly and with less friction. Industrial machinery includes motors, fans, and pulleys, but it’s important for these components to be connected correctly with the proper bearings.
We carry a wide range of bearings to suit various applications. The bearings recommended depends on several characteristics including load, lubrication, sealing, design and misalignment. Quality bearings need to demonstrate reliability with low friction, quiet running, low lubricant requirements, little wear and a long service life.
Ball Bearings use balls as rolling elements. They are characterised by point contact between the balls and the raceways. Highly versatile with as they have a high rotational speed but lower load level. Types include Deep-Groove Ball Bearings, Angular Contact Ball Bearings, Self-Aligning Ball Bearings and Thrust Ball Bearings.
Roller bearings are rolling bearings with cylindrical, needle, tapered or barrel rollers as rolling elements. Certain series can support not only radial forces but also axial forces in one or both directions. Types include Barrel Roller Bearings, Tapered Roller Bearings, Spherical Roller Bearings, Axial Spherical Roller Bearings, Needle Roller Bearings, Axial Needle Roller Bearings and Axial-angular Contact Roller Bearings.
Plain bearings are bearings for very small radial and axial design envelopes where high load carrying capacity is nevertheless required. In plain bearings, the moving part (normally a shaft or shaft stud) slides on the sliding surface of a plain bearing cup or plain bearing bush fixed in the housing against the resistance caused by the sliding friction. We carry a full range of plain bearings, rod ends and bushings.
Custom needs require customised solutions. We also carry the following bearing solutions; Combined Axial-, Radial-Bearings, Super precision bearings, Ball bearing track rollers, yoke type track rollers and stud type track rollers.
