    What is material handling bearings?

    The smooth operation of the industrial sector requires materials to be moved around swiftly and effectively. For the movement of products, material handling equipment are widely used across industries. This equipment has several moving parts, that deploy bearings to enable rotational or linear movement while reducing friction and handling stress.

    Bearings used in material handling equipment are prone to wear and potential failure leading to unplanned downtime in industries. When selecting a bearing for a particular material handling application, factors like bearing friction, temperature, and lubrication along with the design and construction of the bearing need consideration.
