Date Published: May 13, 2014

The Drives and Controls Show 2014 at Birmingham’s NEC hosted a total of 12,793 visitors, and increase of almost 15% on the previous year. Show visitors were interested by the comprehensive range of specialist bearing products on show at the Carter Manufacturing Stand. The products generated an unprecedented level of enquiries and enthusiasm, especially the newer technologies such as the OAV Air Bearings and ISISZ Split Thin Section Bearings.

 

OAV Air Bearings have further developed a technology enabling the practical use of frictionless air bearings, an innovation displayed to great effect on the stand. No friction means no heat so with just a bit of technological imagination the applications are almost endless. Air bearings are available as: Air Bushings, Flat Rectangular Air Bearings, Roller Air Bearings, Flat Rectangular Air Bearings, Thrust Air Bearings and Bushings, Vacuum Preloaded Air Bearings, Air Bearing Assemblies and Custom Air Bearings.

 

Carter has to date received a large number of requests for further information as a result of the show, with air bearings, ISISZ ceramic and hybrid bearings and Silverthin thin section bearings generating the greatest interest.

The ISISZ ceramic and hybrid bearings are used in a multitude of applications including Ultra-low temperature, Ultra high vacuum and Cryogenic applications. This coupled with Carter’s unsurpassed technical capability in understanding severe environment applications breaks technological ground and further demonstrates Carter’s place at the forefront of research and development, sourcing and manufacture of specialist bearing products.

Silverthin Precision Thin Section Bearings are often used in Hi-Tech equipment and machinery where compact designs and ease of maintenance is key such as rotary polishing equipment, X-ray – MRI, rotary pipe cutting equipment, rotary welding equipment etc. Click this link to view a comprehensive list of thin section bearing applications. For The bearing width and section (distance from bore to outside diameter) in each series remain constant regardless of the change in bore diameter. Carter Manufacturing Limited is the European Master Distributor for the Silverthin product range and carry a comprehensive stock locally in our UK warehouse.
