The cycling of heavy mechanical presses is demanding on bearings. High loads are common and complex rebuilds are the norm for flywheel and clutch assemblies. Our series of standard and special clearance cylindrical, spherical and tapered roller bearings produced with heavy bronze retainers or pin-type cages are designed with these loads in mind. We also offer spherical and tapered roller bearings for forging manipulators that have the same performance characteristics. In Ring Rolling, special bearing sets, and thrust bearings can be found on modern rolling equipment. American's line of high precision cylindrical radial and thrust bearings are designed around ISO standards to fit your application.
Cylindrical, Spherical & Tapered Bearings
Thin section cylindrical roller bearings are used on the main shaft of fly wheel powered presses.
