The bearing is one of the most widely used mechanical components. This indispensable component plays an important role in every moving part, whether rotary or linear.
Bearings are divided into two main categories:
Rolling bearings are made up of two rings, inner and outer, with raceways for the rolling elements, balls or rollers, a cage to separate the rolling elements and watertight or metal shields according to the requirements of each application.
The most commonly used components in bearing production are:
Slide bearings, bushings, bronze washers and pads are made out of antifriction materials.
Bearings come in so many shapes, designers can choose the optimal one for their project.
Despite this wide choice, the products listed in the catalogue are unsuited for certain applications due to dimensions, speed, high or very high temperatures and other assembly difficulties.
Lyra Bearing can design and manufacture bearings tailored to any type of application whenever customisation is required.
Bearings can be produced in very small sizes. These microbearings are widely used in precision micromechanical sectors, such as watchmaking and electrical medical instruments. They can also be very big, sometimes more than 3 metres in diameter. These bearings are used in steel plants, drilling machines and plants, paper mills, offshore plants, wind turbines and many other applications.
Lyra Bearing will design and construct the best performing bearing for you, offering optimum benefits in terms of value for money and quality of work.
