Plastic bearings manufacturing process
We use prime materials that offer the best characteristics to make our bearings. We can provide a selection of nylon bearings molded from Nylatron® GS. This advanced material features low friction, low cost,and resistance to chemicals and abrasions.
Our inventory also includes 1 million buckets. In addition, we have 15 million elevator bolts, along with belt splices, abrasion-resistant sheeting, drag flights and hanger bearings.
For more than 40 years, we have been serving the agricultural and industrial industries. We are North America's largest manufacturer of elevator buckets and bolts. Our company began because we knew steel buckets alone were not sufficient to meet the needs of industrial and agricultural elevators. Our commitment to meeting needs with innovative products remains unchanged. Product research and development is ongoing.
