Bearing Application Engineering

When designing a mechanical system, the bearing selection plays a critical role in the function and eventual commercial success of that product. There are many important factors to consider when selecting a bearing which can be overwhelming. It’s important to consult bearing experts who spend all day, every day, working with these specific considerations.


Carter Bearings has decades of experience developing cost effective and solution driven bearing arrangements for the most extreme applications. This will reduce your development time and drastically increase the performance of your mechanical system.


What sets Carter apart from other suppliers is the technical depth in which we engage our bearing projects. Quickly you’ll find Carter supporting bearing size, type, material, sealing options and lubrication choices. However, we then go on to offer much deeper support such as:


  • Finite Element Analysis
  • Stiffness matrices
  • Bearing fits
  • Stack up of tolerances
  • Thermal expansion mismatch
  • Bearing internal clearance through temperature gradients
  • Chemical compatibilities
  • Equivalent load data
  • Expected life
  • Lubrication fill amount
  • Maintenance requirements
  • Preload values and methods
  • Bearing arrangements and load distributions


When consulting with Carter’s engineers, you’ll find peace of mind that you’re project is good hands. We have been privileged to work with world leading manufactures over the years which allows us to always be on the cutting edge of new technologies. Carter takes this experience and presents it to you, when applicable, to optimize your design and eventually maximize your profits.
