Action Bearing, providers of bearing and related products for OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets throughout New England, now caters to the Biomedical market through their new Robotics and Automation Division. Action Bearing is located at 201 Brighton Ave. in Boston.
The new Robotics and Automation division will be led by industry solutions expert, Rick Piracini. Action Bearing’s knowledgeable Robotics and Automation 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.
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 biomedical applications including prosthetics and clinical and imaging equipment such as centrifuges, X-ray and CT scan equipment, hospital room carts and hospital bed pulleys for lifting patients.
In need of special solutions? Action 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. Action Bearing also provides off-the-shelf linear guidance for unique applications.
One of Action Bearings’ newest clients is a medical device company that purchased “control bearings” for their foot prosthetic. Control bearings are ball bearings that allow the client to replicate the movement of the ankle.
