From the melting furnaces, to the hot mill, through the finishing stands, all along the way, American Roller Bearings carry the loads that make, move, and shape the metal into it's final marketable form.  American bearings are used every day to roll out finished aluminum, steel, and brass products.


Various American Bearings are used in steel mills.

Bearings Used in Primary Metals Industry

American has been supplying all types of bearings for this industry all over the world for decades in numerous types of equipment.  BOF trunions and drives, pinion stands, two-high and four-high rolling mills, coilers, runout tables and furnace cars.  Typically, large multirow cylindrical and tapered roller bearings are used for high radial and thrust loads, while some mills use deep-grove ball bearings and ball angular-contact bearings for location and thrust.

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.
