Custom Bearings and Components
The Right Bearing Isn’t Always a Standard Bearing.
Custom bearings can actually create value throughout the design, production and supply chain management process, thereby reducing overall costs.
Auburn Bearing specializes in the design, development, and manufacture of custom, hard-to-find, discontinued and obsolete bearings in low- to mid-volume for a wide range of industries and applications.
We can customize various aspects of a bearing, including the size, design, features and materials, with much shorter lead times than our competitors.
Additionally, we can manufacture interchanges for industry standard bearings as well as individual bearing parts and other precision components that your application requires.
Common custom bearings and components include ball retainers, thrust washers, modified balls, bearing housings, etc.
The typical scenario for creating a custom bearing is the customer has (a) the part number of an obsolete bearing, (b) dimensions of what is needed, and (c) stated requirements for the application.
Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing will quote a price with a written description of what we can provide. If that price looks favorable to the customer we will then produce drawings for the customer’s approval. Drawings can be provided anywhere in this process.
