Custom Bearings for Complex Needs.
Whether you’re customizing a standard bearing or starting from a concept; we have extensive engineering and state-of-the-art production capabilities to design and manufacture custom ball bearing solutions for your specific application.
For over 25 years, we’ve prided ourselves on our ability to work with our customers on unique bearing designs and applications. We provide only precision bearings to some of the most demanding industries including aerospace, defense, semiconductor, medical, space, and general industrial sectors among others.
Our precision bearings deliver consistent and reliable performance designed to your specifications.
More than bearing design.
We don’t stop at the bearing design phase. We have the capabilities to prototype, analyze for performance, and provide full production allotment – even small lots – for your custom bearings. We’ll test your custom bearings extensively using industry-leading analysis tools. Our evaluating metrics analyze bearing performance using several metrics including load and speed requirements and environmental factors that are sure to affect performance.
Schatz Application Engineers will work with you to modify bearing characteristics based on your system requirements including considerations like materials, surface treatments, size and number of rolling elements, ring sections, clearance/preload, cage design, seal design, anti-rotation devices, and lubrication holes.
