Product Engineers Call Upon Emerson Bearing Boston for Bearing Expertise During R&D

Emerson Bearing Boston, providers of bearing and related products for OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets around the globe, is much more than a bearings supplier. The company’s bearing experts often consult with product engineers during product research and development.

Recent design innovations where Emerson Bearing Boston played a key role in the development of specific bearings for robotics and automation in the health care industry include ErgoNurse®, which is a bed repositioning system that enables medical staff to single-handedly reposition patients without manually lifting them. The company also assisted in the development of a custom, thin, air-frame style bearing for a Boston-based manufacturer of prosthetics.

According to Steve Katz, president of Emerson Bearing Boston, “We often have clients come to us with a specific bearing need. Our prosthetic manufacturing client required a control bearing which allowed for replication of the movement of the ankle. We developed a thin section bearing that is very precise and able to endure high loads at low speed, in other words, a bearing that supports a human’s weight and movement.”

Emerson Bearing Boston’s bearing expertise has also been tapped in the design of the system for the spare tire on the back of Humvee and Hummers.

Katz continued, “Our clients are innovators. They are creating products for the next generation and we’re honored to advise them during product development.”

Emerson Bearing Boston Offers On-Site Engineering Seminars

Emerson Bearing Boston, providers of bearing and related products for OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets around the globe, recently announced Engineering Seminars for companies located in the greater Boston area.

Emerson Bearing’s Engineering Seminars are held on-site for a company’s employees. A senior field service engineer from the factory that Emerson Bearing Boston represents will educate staff about bearings and related parts.

Most recently, Emerson Bearing Boston spoke at Schnitzer Northeast in Everett, which is the metals recycling yard, port and regional office of Schnitzer Steel Industries, Inc., a leading global metal recycler.

“Our engineering seminars are designed to educate clients about bearings and related parts required for their machinery which manufactures, processes or recycles products,” noted Steve Katz, president.

Bearings often operate in unique performance conditions such as dirty and biohazardous environments, extremely hot/cold temperatures and environments where chemicals, radiation, speed/velocity and size play a major role. Emerson Bearing’s experts educate clients about the factors involved in the smooth operation of bearings and ultimately in the prevention of premature bearing failure.

“A dry dirty environment is typically an environment that generates some kind of dust. A wet dirty environment often involves water or a chemical that emulsifies with the oil (bearing lubricant), which causes the bearing to fail. To give you an example, worn seals on linear bearings that are used in a dirty environment will enable contamination. Even with the best design, lubrication and installation, bearing failure will occur if the operating environment is not taken into consideration,” explained Steve Katz, Emerson Bearing’s president. “Ideally, our engineering seminars will help companies eliminate the guesswork; avoid costly downtime and ensure maximum operational efficiency.”

To arrange an engineering seminar, contact Emerson Bearing Boston at 866-995-8765.

Piracini to Lead New Division that Caters to Manufacturers at Emerson Bearing Boston

Rick Piricini
Emerson Bearing Boston, providers of bearing and related products for OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets around the globe, has announced a dedicated division for manufacturers of robotics and automation. Rick Piracini, Emerson Bearing’s industry solutions expert, will lead the new Robotics and Automation Division.

Piracini oversees Emerson Bearing’s knowledgeable Robotics and Automation team and 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 their applications.

Robotics and automation require the highest standards in bearings. All movements have to be supported with extremely high precision and reliability in every axis. This provides smooth running, high load capacity, rigidity and long life. Ball bearings, miniature instrumentation bearings and linear motion bearings are used in a number of factories that manufacture the robotic machinery and automated equipment.

For manufacturers in need of special solutions, Emerson Bearing offers thin cross section, high capacity, ball bearings in radial, angular or four point contact styles. Plain bearings (bushings) for small radial or axial design envelopes, which are maintenance free, are available in metal backed style with a liner or thermoplastic with a composition to suit various needs: food grade, high load, dirty environment, etc. Emerson Bearing also provides expert linear guidance for unique applications.

Emerson Bearing offers a vast inventory and 24/7 service, which is critical to customers’ operations. Among Emerson Bearing’s wide range of clients is a very large manufacturer of Robotic and Automation equipment that serves the Automotive industry as well as the automation of the complete assembly of Flat screen televisions.

“Our off-the-shelf inventory, same day service and weekend operating hours help factories avoid costly down-time by providing the necessary bearings that are critical to their operations as well as the production lines of their manufacturing customers,” noted Steve Katz, president.
