BOSTON, MA… Emerson Bearing, a Boston, MA-based bearing company catering to niche markets nationwide and the sister company of Action Bearing which serves the New England market, plays a critical “bearing” role in the thriving pulp, paper converting and printing industry.
Despite more printed products going digital, the paper industry remains a constant. Paper has nearly endless applications in the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. In the consumer sector, we regularly utilize books, newspapers, magazines, and bags, while most—if not all—industrial and commercial companies use some form of paper packaging (such as boxes, cartons, packing paper, etc.) for their products.
The paper converting and printing industry has made significant advancements toward improving its environmental footprint. In addition to reducing its consumption of fossil fuels during the production of paper products, it has developed methods of recycling old and used paper products into new materials and products.

The Right Bearing Solutions
Many paper converting and printing systems use bearings to facilitate the rolling, cutting, and unrolling of paper materials. However, the type of bearing employed in the system varies depending on the production requirements.
Paper conversion is the procedure in which raw paper materials get converted into the products that are used every day. To meet this high demand, efficient processes and equipment are a must. Technology in the paper conversion industry relies on bearings as they allow companies to achieve precision, accuracy, and uninterrupted performance.
Emerson Bearing’s bearing solutions for paper converting and printing applications include
ball and roller bearings, cylindrical roller bearings, spherical roller bearings, free running bearings. one-way clutch bearings, cam followers, mounted units and oil seals.
According to Steve Katz, President of Emerson Bearing and Action Bearing, “At every point in the process of going from pulp to print, these bearings have to meet the highest standards. For example, in the initial phase of creating paper the rolling bearings in a paper machine must meet extreme requirements: Moisture, very high temperatures, shaft deflections, high speeds and long running times.”
Bearings play an integral role in paper conversion systems. For use in varying applications, there are different types of bearings to meet unique production requirements. Emerson Bearing’s 25,000 square foot warehouse is fully stocked with a wide range of bearings suitable for all industries.
