Craft Split Bearings have ease and flexibility with initial installation and, most importantly, the ease of replacement.
The bearing is split down to the shaft so that all components, even the seals, can be easily and quickly replaced. With our split design, replacing a bearing becomes a minor maintenance job as opposed to a major, potentially catastrophic event. That’s because it eliminates the need to remove shafts and drive components installed on the shaft, confining the scope of the repair to the bearing itself. Furthermore, in most cases, only the internal bearing components need to be replaced, and this can easily be done without even removing the pedestal.
While the benefits of a split bearing are dramatic, building and designing a reliable one was no easy task. We’ve become an industry leader in bearing design. In fact, Craft has been awarded patents on many innovative features. At Craft, we’re proud of the unmatched level of quality that we’ve achieved in designing and manufacturing the Craft Split Bearing.
With most orders being filled from our extensive and ever expanding inventory, same-day shipment is the norm at Craft. Because of this product’s many, varied applications, we manufacture standard, metric, large-bore and customized bearings.
