Product Announcement from TriStar Plastics Corp.
TriStar Plastics Corp. is a leading partner to manufacturers in over 70 industries - industries with demanding equipment requirements and tough working conditions. But our TriSteel reinforced, metal-backed bearings are up to the task, and have excelled in fields like construction, automotive and agriculture when traditional bimetal, bronze and rolling element bearings have failed.
By delivering a combination of value, power and performance, TriSteel bearings have solved a multitude of gear and transmission challenges:
Wear problems? TriSteels are reinforced for extended service
Designed with a dual-liner construction, TriSteel bearings give a much longer service life than standard metal bearings, and offer an exceptional PV rating. And since both liners are self-lubricating, there is no risk of damage to machinery in the rare instance of a liner break. Our partners have had excellent results with TriSteel as a replacement for metal in areas that cannot be easily reached for maintenance, including spline shafts and planetary gear boxes.
High loads and excessive speeds? TriSteels excel in demanding applications
Our partners build their components to outperform in tough environments, and TriSteel bearings easily withstand these extreme sliding, oscillating and rotary challenges. They give excellent strength-to-weight ratio to resist vibration, such as in the steering and undercarriage areas of farming and construction machinery. They also excel as trunnion bearings in hydraulic gear motors.
Unique sizing? TriSteel bearings give a precise fit
TriSteel bearings are the only bearings with stainless steel substrates, and offer a compact design envelope to achieve just the right wall thickness. Our in-house design experts can help you evaluate the speed, load, and temperature of your hardware for a precise fit. .
