Engineered products

These bearings have standardized dimensions but incorporate special features for specific applications. Properly applied, these bearings make costly customized bearings unnecessary, and they can also greatly reduce lead times since they are generally available from stock.

Engineered product types include:

Hybrid deep groove ball bearings with ceramic balls and rings of bearing steel

These bearings have good emergency running properties and can cope with extreme conditions and high speeds. Their inherent resistance to the passage of electric current means that they are ideal for electric motors and electrically powered tools.

INSOCOAT® bearings

These bearings have an insulating coating of aluminium oxide on the external surfaces of the inner or outer ring. They can be used in difficult electrical applications with no additional design requirements and they can also be a drop-in replacement for conventional bearings in existing applications.

Bearings for extreme temperatures

Bearings with graphite-based lubricant effective in temperatures up to +350 °C, making these products very suitable for kiln trucks, roller hearth furnaces, and bakeries.

NoWear® bearings

These bearings have been surface treated to withstand arduous operating conditions such as zero or very light loads or boundary lubrication conditions.

Bearings and bearing units with Solid Oil

For applications where conventional grease or oil lubrication methods are not adequate or practical.

Polymer ball bearings

These bearings are resistant to corrosion and to many chemicals. They are lightweight and quiet running. Polymer ball bearings require no lubricant.
