Bearings of the Economy


Bearings are an important component of many types of machinery and equipment. Bearings are tasked with reducing friction between two surfaces and making it possible for parts to move more smoothly throughout their operation. Broadly speaking, bearings can be classed in two basic categories, thrust and radial bearings.

Thrust bearings support axial loads, while radial bearings are used in rotating shafts. There are numerous different types of bearings available within each of these broadly defined categories, each one designed for a specific purpose and use. Some of the many types of bearings we use on a daily basis include flange, roller, ball, and split bearings, to name only a few.

Without access to quality, durable, and dependable bearings, South Africa’s economy – and all the machines used in its respective sectors – would seize to work. It is because of this that the production and supply of quality bearings are crucial to the economy, and the country’s ability to compete globally. Therefore, it is never necessary to accept anything other than the very best when sourcing the bearings your company’s machinery needs. Do not put your company at a disadvantage by settling for inferior quality bearings. Insist on the best.
