The wood industry spans a variety of bearing requirements and Emerson Bearing Boston, a bearing company catering to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) markets around the world, now offers a comprehensive online library of eBooks, charts and guides dedicated to the woodworking industry.
The finishing phases of woodworking requires saws, planers and finishing equipment that use high speed spindles that work under great stress while maintaining critical tolerances. To learn about bearings used in the woodworking industry, reference Emerson Bearing’s Type E Mounted Units eBook and other guides, which include “DualVee Guide Wheels and Components”, “Guided Motion Solutions for Woodworking”, and “Woodworking Precision Planer Bearings”, now available in Emerson Bearing’s industry solutions online library at www.emersonbearing.com/industries/wood-products/
In woodworking, deep groove radial ball bearings are used for heavy radial loads and relatively low bidirectional thrust loads. Typically employed in high-speed precision applications, deep groove radial ball bearings can be designed with enhanced metal shields or rubber seals. Multiple internal clearances, tolerance grades, and cage designs are offered to suit specific applications’ running precision and speed. Emerson Bearing offers a special solution for woodworking – Radial ball bearings with the P53 designation. The Abec 5 precision accommodates high speeds and controlled runout while the C3 internal clearance allows for the stress and heat buildup of high radial loads.
Whether sourcing bearings and related parts for finished cabinetry or at the logging level, where heavy duty mounted units and roller chain are essential as the logs are delimbed and rough processed at the sawmill, Emerson Bearing Boston has a dedicated Wood Products division to assist every step of the way. The division is led by Marketing specialist, Lee Holt, who helps clients determine which bearing technologies would be most suitable by taking into consideration the specifications, recommendations, maintenance strategies, fatigue life and wear resistance of the bearing in relation to the application.
“We are dedicated to helping customers find the right bearing for their application,” said Steve Katz, president of Emerson Bearing. “Our online library is a handy tool specific to the woodworking industry that provides comprehensive information needed in the selection, application and maintenance of bearings.”
