Ball Bearings
Available in all different configurations,
deep groove ball bearings are found in a
huge range of applications. Open, sealed
or shielded we can help.
Roller Bearings
Roller bearings typically have a higher
radial load capacity than ball bearings,
but a low axial capacity and higher
friction under axial loads.
Angular Contact
This type of bearing allows both radial
and axial loads combined. The larger
the contact angle – usually in the range
of 10 to 45 degrees – the higher the
axial load supported.
Spherical Roller Bearings
Offering an unequalled combination
of high load capacity, high shock loads
and self aligning ability, spherical roller
bearings are found in all areas of light
and heavy industry.
Tapered Roller Bearings
Comprising of an outer ring, inner ring
and roller assembly, this type of bearing
can take large axial forces. In many
applications, they are used back-to-back,
supporting the axial forces equally in
either direction.
Thrust Bearings
Composed of either balls or rollers
supported in a ring, these bearings
can be used in thrust applications
where there is little radial load present.
Split Roller Bearings
Available in both pillow block and flanged
units, split roller bearings dramatically
reduce downtime when compared to
standard units.
Ball Bearing Units
These units are available in many
different configurations, including
pillow block, flange and take-up.
The housings vary in materials,
including cast iron and pressed steel.
Needle Roller Bearings
Both single and double row needle
bearings are available, having very high
load carrying capacities, and suitable for
high speeds. Open and sealed versions
are available.
Adapter sleeves are used for locating
taper bored bearings onto a cylindrical
shaft. They are available for both
imperial and metric shafts.
Super Precision
Predominantly available in radial, single
row angular contact and deep groove ball
bearings. A variety of seals, shields and
cages are available for most bearings.
Linear Bearings
Our linear range includes ball bushings,
housings, shafts and supports as well
as complete linear systems designed
to your specification.
Available in a wide variety of configurations
and materials, bearing housings can also
be made to order to accommodate most
Cam Followers
Cam followers are bearings with a stud
incorporating needle rollers in a thick
walled outer ring.They are designed
to have minimal radial clearance to
increase the loading capacity.
Available in various materials including
sintered iron, bronze, metal-polymer,
and nylon.
Balls and Rollers
Precision balls are available in many
different materials, including carbon
chrome, stainless steel, brass, bronze,
tungsten carbide and nylon.
