Action Bearing, a Boston based bearing company catering to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets throughout the U.S., has recently announced a new division to specifically cater to the bearing needs of metal recycling and wire forming customers.
Action Bearing’s customer care representatives in the new Metal Recycling division are trained to accommodate the unique needs of clients in these specific industries. Action’s 24/7 service and inventory are critical to the operations of many of their clients.
The division is led by Action Bearing’s Marketing Specialist Richard Furtado. The knowledgeable Metal Recycling team assists clients in determining which bearing technologies would be most suitable by taking into consideration the specifications, recommendations, maintenance strategies, fatigue life and wear resistance of the bearing in relation to the application.
The use of grooved bearings and straighteners is an essential part of the Wire Forming process. Many of these bearings are available with oversized O.D.’s which provide longer life and stability. At Action, all bearings and cam followers can be grooved or modified to custom specifications. Related products in Action’s inventory include V-grooved bearings, wire straighteners, ball bearings and cam followers.
Metal Recycling and shredding requires bearings that have high load values, can endure high shock loads and have extended maintenance cycles. Action offers a complete line of split cylindrical and spherical roller bearings which have the added feature of being easily assembled around a shaft. The complete assembly is engineered in halves to ease installation, inspection and replacement of bearings without removing or disrupting other elements of the drive or shaft system. Other related products offered include mounted units, ball bearings, roller bearings, roller chains, hydraulic cylinders and pumps, belts, oil seals, spherical bushings and rod ends.
As part of their customer care, Action’s industry experts provide clients with the unique service of “Bearing Failure Analysis” which helps them determine the cause of bearing failure so that they may prevent future failure and predict reliability. Or, if clients desire to do so, they can utilize the Bearing Failure Analysis program within the Technical Toolbox on the Action Bearing website.
“Action’s Metal Recycling division was created to meet increased demand and significant growth in the metal recycling and wire forming markets over the last couple of years,” noted Steve Katz, president of Action Bearing.
