Auburn Bearing’s new F Series and FM Series Metric Thrust Bearings were recently featured in the September 2019 issue of BearingNEWS magazine. These new additions to our line of thrust bearings offers improvements in design, an array of custom options, and much lower lead time than competitors’ offerings.
The August 2019 issue of Design World magazine features Auburn Bearing’s new thrust bearing mounting system, the MT-114RG. This new mounting system design allows the bearing to be screw mounted, which gives the designer more options in how to use the bearing as well as the ability to adjust the length of the assembly.
Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing is please to announce the addition of a new and exclusive mounted thrust bearing solution, the MT-114RG, to its trusted line of bearings. The MT-114RG allows our popular T-114RG style thrust bearing series to be conveniently threaded onto a shaft for mounting or to be bolted into place.
Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing is excited to announce the addition of two miniature thrust ball bearing series, the F series and the FM series, to its trusted line of thrust bearing products. The thrust bearings found in these bearing series are available in bore sizes as small as 2 mm and as large as 18 mm and race ODs as small as 6 mm and as large as 20 mm.
For those of you that thought bearings were part of a broad category, manufacturing constitutes an even broader category. At Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing, our expertise lies not only in the thrust bearings and custom bearings, but also in custom manufacturing. Our precision manufacturing facility can produce custom mechanical parts to help solve your customer’s problems.
The most common material used to manufacture bearing rings and balls is 52100 Chrome Steel. Bearings manufactured from 52100 Chrome Steel offer a handful of advantages over bearings manufactured using other materials, including superior hardness, high load capacity, rolling fatigue strength, wear resistance, dimensional precision, and quality surface finishing.
We at Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing have part numbers in our catalog that have not been made in 20 years but it’s not a problem if you want one of these items. Why, you ask? Our production equipment is designed for low to medium volume quantities with a high mix of part numbers. This allows us to have shorter production lead and run times.
The balls in conventional thrust bearings are in constant contact with the round or radius grooves. This creates friction, building up heat and reducing load capacity. Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing has redesigned the groove to an uneven “V” configuration, reducing friction and drag. This results in cooler temperatures, longer life and increased load capacity.
One of the keys to optimal bearing performance is correct lubrication. Examining your bearing requirements and choosing the right lubricant for your application will save you time and money. You will see lower maintenance and lubrication costs, less downtime, and better machine reliability. Check out our guidelines and recommendations for bearing lubrication here.

Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing received a request from a renowned medical device company to manufacture a custom-made mini thrust bearing for a delicate medical part to be used in an innovative treatment for scoliosis, and was able to manufacture and deliver the finished product to the customers specification in only 13 days.
Just a friendly reminder to let you know that Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing offers an interchange for the 2900 Series Metric Ball Thrust Bearing. This interchange features a nylon retainer and is available with ID ranges from 10mm (0.394 inch) to 140mm (5.512 inch) and OD ranges from 26mm (1.024 inch) to 185mm (7.283 inch).
Fairport Products purchased the Auburn Ball Bearing and tube winder product lines from M. D. Knowlton Company in August of 2006. Since that time the companies have been known as two separate entities – Fairport Products and Auburn Ball Bearing. Now the two will become one company known as Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing.
It’s true… we have been in the bearing business for a long time now. Auburn Ball Bearing was established in 1898. Recently, we came across this piece of memorabilia from our early years and wanted to share it with you. It is from an exhibit at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, Missouri.
