  • Satellite Systems
  • Packaging Machinery
  • Scanning Equipment
  • Semi-Conductor
  • Manufacturing Equipment
  • Slip Ring Assemblies
  • Harmonic Drives
  • Speed Reducers

Advantages of RBC Bearings thin section ball bearings are:
  • Light weight
  • Small cross section
  • Multi-load capabilities
  • Variety of cross section & sizes
  • Modified & custom bearings

Standard cross sections range from 3/16” to 1” inch. Bore sizes can go up to 40 inches. Stainless steel and other materials are available depending on application need. Seals are available on all sizes and standard cross sections. Super duplex configurations give added rigidity and can also be applied to all sizes.

Roller Bearings, Industrial Tectonics Bearings Corp.


Compared to ball bearings, roller bearings have a higher load carrying capability due to line contact vs point contact. Roller bearings are optimized with large diameter rollers that allow for high speed applications. The motion of the races forces the elements inside to roll with very little rolling resistance.

Applications are listed below:

  • Gear Boxes
  • Landing Gear
  • Trailer Wheels
  • High Load Trucks
Advantages of RBC Bearings roller bearings are:
  • Available in a wide variety of sizes
  • Friction stability and energy expenditure are small
  • Increased radial load capability
  • Higher precision

Needle Bearings, Industrial Tectonics Bearings Corp.


Needle Bearings are primarily used in vehicle components. They are of the smallest and lightest cross section in the roller bearing family. Needle bearings are a line contact bearing. They are designed to be light weight wile carrying heavy loads in oscillation.

Applications are listed below:

  • Helicopter rotors transmissions
  • Marine crankshafts
  • Connecting rods
  • Gear pumps
  • Oil field pumping shafts
  • Mud pumps
Advantages of RBC needle roller bearings are:
  • Higher load capability than a single ball row or roller bearings of comparable OD.
  • Integrated Can accommodate a larger diameter, more rigid shaft valves


Hourglass Roller Bearings, Industrial Tectonics Bearings Corp.


Hourglass bearings are great for high load applications. This is due to the line contact that helps spread the load through the race way. These are also optimal for shaft misalignment.

Applications are listed below:

  • Aircraft Flap System Actuator
  • Fin Actuator

Advantages:
  • Shaft misalignment

Spherical Roller Bearings, Industrial Tectonics Bearings Corp.


Spherical Roller Bearings are great for high load applications. This is due to the line contact that helps spread the load through the race way. These are also optimal for housing misalignment.

Applications are listed below:

  • Aircraft Flap System Actuator
  • Fin Actuator
Advantages:
  • Housing misalignment
