A precision overmolded bearing is an excellent choice when you need a custom wheel, roller or pulley for a new product or when required in limited quantities. Simply put, a standard bearing is overmolded with a plastic tire. The lower cost of tooling of these designs will keep you on budget and using readily available standard bearings will keep you on schedule.
Many features can be incorporated into a custom design that can meet all of the needs of your application.
- Custom profiles
- Corrosion resistance
- Abrasion resistance
- Custom mounting configurations
The wide choice of bearings and plastic resins allow for a custom design that can meet nearly any operating requirement. Stainless steel or plated bearings for challenging environmental conditions, engineering grade resins to survive in high temperatures, resist chemicals and provide superior wear resistance.
Industries that have benefited from precision overmolded bearings include;
- Medical devices
- Food processing equipment
- Commercial interiors
- Industrial equipment
