Engineering Capabilities

MACHINERY & TESTING FACILITIES
Smith Bearing® has a fully-integrated manufacturing facility capable of producing high-precision needle roller bearings for both the Aerospace and Industrial market. Our computerized (CNC) grinding and precision machining centers, considered to be the most advanced in the industry, are capable of manufacturing a wide range of
products to exacting tolerances in order to meet the needs of our customers.

Our advanced metallurgical department routinely verifies and tests all raw materials, plating and heat-treating processes used in the manufacturing of our products. This careful analysis and scrutiny in each phase of our procedure assures proper conformance to all Aerospace requirements and guarantees that only materials meeting our rigid standards are used in Smith Bearing® products.

ENGINEERING
Extensive experience in their engineering department allows Smith Bearing® to work closely with end users and OEMs in order to offer the best solution for their bearing requirements.

Smith Bearing® engineers have extensive knowledge of available metallurgies so that they may offer customers their experience to determine the best suitable material for a special design and application. Smith manufactures bearings in a wide range of materials including high-carbon alloy steels, stainless steels, tool steels, and other exotic alloys

CUSTOM ASSEMBLIES
Smith Bearing® has the ability to manufacture a variety of custom bearing assemblies. Typically this entails the precision machining of a bearing housing and the assembly of needle or ball bearings into the housing.

By controlling the entire design and manufacturing process of a custom order, Smith Bearing® guarantees the quality, performance, and delivery of an assembly. Smith Bearing® performs all aspects of such projects from design to finish including the machining process, applications of special coatings and plating, assembling and testing of the final product.

QUALITY & DEPENDABILITY
Smith Bearing® has received both ISO 9001 and AS 9100 quality registrations in recognition of our continued commitment to world-class quality control systems. Our quality system is recognized by General Electric, Lockheed, Boeing Aircraft Corporation, British Aerospace, as well as many other military and aerospace companies. Our military bearings meet the requirements of Mil-B-3990 (SAE AS 39901). This level of quality certifications and approvals assures our customers unequaled dependability of our products.

METAL INDUSTRY SOLUTIONS
Problem with Needle Bearing cam followers experiencing premature failure from axial loads and contamination?  We have the solution for you!  SMITH-TRAX idler-roller bearings with tapered roller or deep groove ball bearings are designed to handle both heavy radial loads and thrust loads that needle-bearing cam followers cannot.  Because the internal bearing rolling elements do not grind together like needle rollers, they do not skew and fail at high speeds.

Maintenance-free SMITH-TRAX bearings are lubricated for life, with special seals to keep out sand, moisture, and other heavy-industry contamination.  SMITH-TRAX Bearings are manufactured in study styles for fast installation and in yoke styles for maximum load capacity.  Produced in inch and metric sizes, there are four different configurations (Plain, Flanged, V-Groove, and U-Groove) to satisfy a wide range of applications.  SMITH-TRAX Bearings are value-priced and interchangeable with other major idler-rollers to meet your cost-containment objectives.

Precision Manufactured Smith Rails drastically reduce system design time and sourcing cost of guidance systems for material handling equipment supported by heavy-duty SMITH-TRAX rollers.
