Precision Bearings for Industrial Manufacturers


Schatz provides superior technical support, leading-edge technology, short prototype and production lead times, and both standard and custom products. Here are some types of precision ball bearings that we design and manufacture.
  • Radial Bearings or Deep Groove Bearings support radial, thrust, moment, or combination loads.
  • Angular Contact Bearings are designed to give maximum capacity for thrust loads in one direction, or combined radial and thrust loads where the thrust load is primary. If the thrust load is bi-directional, duplex bearings or radial bearings should be used.
  • Duplex Bearings are two single row bearings that are manufactured to be mounted in pairs. Duplex bearings offer greater stiffness and are typically preloaded. Preloading utilizes a preset applied axial load to increase the system accuracy and stiffness.
  • Double Row Bearings utilize two rows of balls and offer increased radial and thrust capacity in both directions.
  • Four Point Contact Bearings or Gothic Arch Bearings or X-Type Bearings utilize four points of raceway contact to offer increased axial and moment stiffness. These bearings are good for moment loads and thrust loads, but are not recommended for applications with heavy radial loads or high speeds.
The list below includes applications that we serve, but Schatz can also provide robotic bearings such as robotic arm bearings.

Consider these questions:

  • Does your current ball bearing supplier maintain consistent lead-times during all phases of the business cycle?
  • Do they deliver on-time to your target dates?
  • Are they flexible with design and schedule changes and can they expedite deliveries?
  • Are they responsive to quote requests, technical questions, and follow‑ups?
  • Are they easy to do business with?
  • Do they enhance your competitive position?

If you answered “no” to any of the questions contact us.
