Carter Showcases Bearing Advancements at Drives and Controls Exhibition 2016

The time has come again for the famous Drives and Control Exhibition (NEC Birmingham, 12-14 April 2016). Many of the UK’s leading companies within the Automation, Motion Engineering and Power Transmission industries will demonstrate their latest technology and advancements while giving opportunities to connect with strategic industry suppliers. The exhibition attracts significantly more attention every year and is on track to beat 2014’s visitor turnout of 13,000 people.

Carter Manufacturing Limited will continue the theme of “Revolutionary Ideas in Motion“ with their innovative solutions to the world’s most chaotic environments for applications in vacuum & cryogenic, nuclear, pharmaceutical, optical, aerospace & defence, and oil & gas.

Carter is very proud to introduce their new proud range, Cobra Solid Lubricant.


Cobra Solid Lubricant is a graphite based solid lubricant that is injected into a clean bearing and then thermally cured to harden within nearly 100% of the space between the inner and outer races. It is specifically designed for ball and roller bearings and completely encapsulates the balls or rollers along with the cage. When the bearing rotates the graphite deposits a thin film of graphite on every contact surface providing a low coefficient of friction over the races. This is particularly effective in high temperature applications as no lubrication will purge from the bearing ensuring longer a longer and more effective life cycle.

Our solid lubricant bearings come in high temperature ranges at maximum temperature at 250⁰F (121.11⁰C), 450⁰F (232.22⁰C) and 660⁰F (348.89⁰C) to allow for a broad range of applications.

We offer a variety of models such as:
Standard – for applications in idler, converting, packaging, radiation and food applications
High Speed – for a quieter and smoother operation at high speeds
Ultra High Speed – utilizing proprietary UTA Nano Technology to achieve the highest speeds with the quietest and smoothest performance
Vacuum – for applications where minimal out-gassing is required
Carter will also display their recent advancements in the following product groups:

Silverthin Thin Section Bearings           Carter Needle Bearing Cam Followers


Unasis High Temperature Bearings and Unasis Hybrid & Fully Ceramic Bearings


Unasis Split Thin Section Bearings and IBC Super Precision Bearings
