Here at SBL Services, the most common problem our customers encounter is the identification of engineering products, in this case bearings. There are various types of bearings varying by application including ball and roller bearings, linear bearings, as well as mounted versions that may use either rolling element bearings or plain bearings.
With the production efforts of countless industries and machines, comes countless bearing styles to accommodate them. Each engineered specifically for the job required. There are many factors that influence the design of a bearing: load type, speed, temperature, shock or vibration, dirt or abrasive contamination, possible alignment inaccuracies, space limitations or shaft rigidity requirements.
We appreciate that identifying bearings can be a headache to you! By giving us a call (01793 615171) or visiting our trade counter at Unit 5, Glenmore Business Park, Swindon, SN5 7FP, we are here to help you.
