Sometimes the demands of your application change and the requirements of your bearings change too. American Roller Bearing can help you evaluate these changes and help find if existing bearings can be modified to meet these needs or if a new bearing design is needed when bearing modification may not be an option.
Our bearing modifications can include but are not limited to regrinding of existing new components, races or spacers to change internal clearance values, adding lubrication features such grooves and holes (W33) for better performance, or machining of counterbores to better locate the bearing position.
For more examples of our standard and special bearing modifications or a review of your application data, please contact us.

Bearings We Offer
American Roller Bearing primarily makes heavy duty bearings that are used in various industries in the US and around the world. Not only must our industrial class bearings provide long in-service life from a rolling fatigue criterion, but they must also hold together structurally from impacts, overloads, and occasional high-speed excursions. The design of every heavy duty bearing has been optimized to this end, including our large bore bearings.
