From the simplest home appliance to the most complex industrial equipment, precision engineering is essential for safe, reliable moving parts. Connections must allow unrestricted movement, which is where roller bearings come in. Like ball bearings, roller bearings are meant to minimize friction while managing a load, but instead of having point contact, roller bearings have line contact. This gives them greater shock resistance and capacity, and they come in a variety of shapes, including cylindrical, tapered, spherical, and needle profiles, to suit various applications.

Manufacturing for the recreation industry requires special considerations. Fishing gear, recreational vehicles, amusement park rides, ski area equipment, and more must be carefully designed and built to last with durable, trustworthy bearings that can withstand extreme conditions such as high impact forces, heavy moisture, and abrasion. At Emerson Bearing, we provide precise, reliable bearings for everything from go-karts to bowling pit setters. Regardless of your needs, we can deliver the right bearing at the right price.
Many industries focus on food. For example, the agricultural industry handles growing, harvesting, and preparing fruits and vegetables for distribution, while the foodservice industry handles preparing and serving meals at restaurants. Both of these industries are distinct from the food processing and packaging industry, which deals with food after it has been processed by the agricultural facilities but before it is distributed to foodservice facilities. Basically, any food that enters a production facility is within the domain of the food processing and packaging industry.

Constant friction within bearings creates heat. Over time, this will deteriorate the bearing, significantly shortening its life. Bearing lubrication plays a vital role in separating the moving parts, minimizing friction and preventing ongoing wear and tear. As such, bearing lubrication is one of the most important aspects in maintaining and prolonging the life of the bearing. Lubricants also serve to reduce corrosion and protect against contaminants that would otherwise damage the bearings. By including inspection and regular lubrication in bearing maintenance, it is possible to improve the functionality and reliability of every bearing, reducing the risk of corrosion-based failures.
Bearings play a critical role in many industrial devices and equipment. While bearing failure is unavoidable, it is possible to minimize the negative impact of failure on company operations. The key is understanding what causes a bearing to fail and how to prevent it from causing premature failure.
Modern machine tools are used to shape parts from wood, ceramic, metal, and other materials into a desired shape or form. For optimal accuracy and reliability, machining equipment requires high quality precision bearings, such as ball screw support bearings. Known for their durability and long lifespan, ball screw support bearings offer superior axial strength and the ability to tolerate high thrust loads without sacrificing accuracy, making them well-suited for high performance actuators.

Precision slewing ring bearings are a type of angular bearing that consists of two concentric rings with balls or rollers that enhance movement in load-bearing and power transmission applications. The two rings may be constructed with toothed gears to increase torque and can facilitate movement in any direction from the center of the bearing. They are ideal for use in low-speed, heavy load applications such as construction and excavation, or more intricate and precise such as medical tools and devices. Overall, there are many benefits to using precision slewing rings bearings.
