Due to increased demand nationwide, Emerson Bearing Boston, a supplier of bearings and related products catering to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) markets around the world, has created a special division to cater to the plastic processing and forming industry.
In the U.S., the plastics industry is the third largest manufacturing industry and there are more than 16,200 plastics facilities, according to SPI, the plastics industry trade association. Emerson Bearing’s growing plastics clientele spans the nation and includes manufacturers of plastic wine corks, plastic bags, plastic strapping and other products.
Emerson Bearing’s industry specialist, Bill Zylicz, leads the dedicated plastics division. The company caters to plastic processing and forming manufacturers across the U.S. in two major categories – extruder and injection molding machines. In an extruder, the processed plastic is pressed through a nozzle into a profiled die. The extruder gearbox is subject to high torques as well as high radial and axial loads. Injection molding machines are used for the production of parts in large quantities. The screw feed and the linear bearings must be insensitive to heat and vibration and have high basic static and dynamic load ratings.
When it comes to supplying bearings to the plastic processing and forming industry, ensuring that the bearings are able to withstand heat and vibration is just part of the equation. Zylicz 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 bearings in relation to the application.
“In order to keep with production schedules, regular monitoring, maintenance and replacement of bearings is critical,” said Steve Katz, president of Emerson Bearing. “Manufacturers turn to us for our expertise, competitive pricing and overall reliability. We offer a vast inventory and 24/7 service, which helps them avoid costly down-time.”
