Spyraflo can help you evaluate key requirements of a specific application and design, or recommend a solution to satisfy performance expectations in the most innovative and economical manner. Spyraflo’s broad experience with both plain and rolling-element bearings in a diverse range of industries makes our engineers distinctively qualified to assist with your project.
Among other testing services, Spyraflo provides life testing, failure mode analysis, performance evaluations, environmental simulation and corrosion resistance testing. Contact Spyraflo to discuss your testing and analysis requirements.
Custom Bearing Design
Our ability to work closely with customers — effectively becoming a design partner — is the foundation of Spyraflo’s success. Our engineers understand that each application is unique. We have a long history of providing innovative and cost-efficient solutions, which give your designs a competitive edge.
Spyraflo regularly designs special bearings far beyond the scope of our standard product line. Whether smaller or larger, with special attributes, or made of special materials, we have the experience to design the optimum solution.
Some of the extreme solutions we have designed for include 1mm to 8” shaft diameters, capacities to 25,000 lbs. [11,340 kg], temperatures from -320° F to 600° F [-195° to 315° C], chemical exposure and UV resistance. More commonly, our engineers design for optimum performance, material utilization or to accommodate a special requirement demanded by the application or assembly process.
Spyraflo understands the demands of modern design cycles and that’s why we produce our prototypes in-house for the quickest possible response. From modified standard products to completely custom designs, Spyraflo will put prototype bearings in your hands quickly so you can complete your design.
Our experienced tool designers know what it takes to produce effective installation tooling. From simple installation punches and anvils to self-ejecting tooling nests, Spyraflo can provide you with the support you need to effectively integrate our bearings into your products, regardless of volume. In addition, we can design tools for your existing press equipment or design and build complete assembly systems.
Spyraflo offers the flexibility to meet your assembly needs for self-clinching and press-fit bearings. Some customers choose to have us produce pre-assembled panels, flanges and components. This makes sense for those who may not want to invest in assembly press equipment or tooling. We can produce the mount component ourselves, or assemble into components you supply.
