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 required in the forging and stamping process. In the ring rolling process, 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.

Bearings Used in Forging & Stamping Presses Industries

Thin section cylindrical roller bearings are used on the main shaft of flywheel powered presses.


Industrial Press

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.
