Emerson Opens Material Handling Division

Oct. 18, 2010
Emerson Bearing, a Boston based bearing company catering to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets throughout the U.S., opened a new Material Handling division for customers requiring bearings and related products for cranes and lift trucks.

Mast guide bearings, load wheels and leaf chain on lift trucks are now part of Emerson’s broad inventory of spherical bushings, taper roller bearings, rod ends, oil seals, isolator seals, adhesives and sealants.

“Cranes require high load carrying capacity and durability whether for wheels, crane hooks, hook blocks or pillar applications,” the Emerson announcement stated. “For most applications, spherical roller bearings provide a durable solution. For applications requiring extra high dynamic and static load ratings, Emerson recommends cylindrical roller sheave bearings which have the added advantage of rubber seals to prevent water and dust intrusion.”

The new division is led by Joe Falvey, marketing specialist and one of Emerson Bearing's industry solution experts. He can be reached at 866-995-8760 or email [email protected].
