Quality Bearings & Components
Miniature Instrument, Plastic, Radial, Angular and Single Row Type Ball Bearings
Ball bearings are used widely in instruments and machines in order to minimize friction and power loss. While the concept of the ball bearing dates back at least to Leonardo da Vinci, their design and manufacture has become remarkably sophisticated.
Sintered Bronze & Needle Roller Pressbearings
In this section you will find many different pressbearings. We carry sintered bronze, delrin, needle roller bearing or needle roller clutch pressbearings. Choose from plain or flanged types. They feature self-aligning bore, up to 5° and are self-lubricating.
Needle Roller Bearings & Roller Clutches
Our shell-type needle bearings feature caged design that offer 3X the speed of uncaged designs. The needles inside the bearing allows for high speed, high load, low profile bearing design. QBC's roller clutches are ideal for indexing, backstopping and overrunning applications. These lightweight, low profile clutches can operate at a high indexing frequency of up to 4 CPS.
Sleeve Bearings & Bar Stock - Sintered Bronze, Split-Type, Plastic
QBC has a great selection of sintered bronze sleeve bearings. Choose from small series, standard series, ultraprecision, plastic or frelon® lined types. Check out our new split-type sleeve bearings which have a composite liner that consists of a carbon steel backing.Solid or cored sintered bronze bar stock is also available. Place your order today.
Linear Bearings, Shafting, Guides, Rails, Cams & Wheels
QBC offers many linear motion components which can be purchased online. Our frelon® lined bearings can carry 4 to 8 times the load of ball bearings. New line of stainless steel precision shafting features 1/64" x 45° chamfer at both ends. Guide blocks made of AISI 1055 steel, concentric and eccentric type guide wheels as well as new needle bearing cam followers are available for purchase in this section.
Precision & Commercial Spherical Bearings & Rod Ends
Rod end bearings are used on the ends of cylinders or linkages to take up misalignment between two connected parts. Both male and female configurations are available and offer optional lubricator fittings. Two-piece and four-piece commerical and precision spherical bearings are offered as well. Spherical bearings are design to handle high radial loads.
Thrust Bearings & Washers, Spacers
Our new line of metric axial needle roller thrust bearings feature steel needles and range in widths from 2 mm to 5 mm. We also stock Axial thrust washers that fit these bearings. Wide range selection of inner and outer ring spacers is also available. Bearing spacers are made of Stainless Steel or Anodized Aluminum material.
Standard Duty and Plastic Pillow Blocks
New standard duty pillow & mounting blocks that feature a cast iron housing with both set screw or locking collar design. Plastic pillow and mounting blocks offer the lightweight mounting solution thanks to the polyester material that these blocks are made of. Other features include acetal ball bearings with stainless steel balls. Both plastic and new dual seal construction ball bearing inserts are available for these mounting and pillow blocks.
BEGA Special Tools
BEGA Induction Heaters
Induction heating is a superior, fast and controlled heating method. It is a safe and environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional heating methods such as ovens, oil baths or blow torches. These methods generate smoke, fumes or oil waste and are hazardous for personal health and safety. Induction heaters are used in bearings and other transmission components for component fitting applications. Standard and TURBO heaters (low frequency) are used for heating beatings and other drive components for mounting purposes. MF Quick-Heaters (middle frequency) are used for heating many parts for both mounting and dismounting purposes. You can use flexible or fixed inductors.
Bearing Condition Monitoring Tools
Detect the condition a bearings and other rotational and transmission components are in with our Condition Monitoring Tools. Our bearing condition checker can evaluate bearing shock pulse measurements, it can measure machine surface temperature and it can be used as an electronic stethoscope for listening to machine sounds. Our VibChecker is another tool that is specific to measuring vibration frequency in bearings.
Hydraulic & Mechanical Bearing Pullers
Hydraulic and mechanical pullers are ideal for pulling and replacing a wide variety of parts including bearings, bushings, wheels, gears and pulleys. Hydraulic push puller tools help to easily fit or remove bearings and sleeves using either the outer or inner edges. Heavy-duty mobile hydraulic pullers can be used for dismantling heavy-duty bearings, couplings, gears and other parts. Mechanical pullers are suitable for extracting bearings and rings that fit flush with other parts.
Hydraulic - Cylinders, Hand & Foot Pumps and Jacks
Hydraulic cylinders, pumps, jacks and more to create hydraulic systems for lifting. Heavy-duty hand pumps feature a forged construction for industrial applications. Hand pumps are equipped with one of our hydraulic cylinders, which come in a variety of different configurations. For instance, our aluminum hydraulic cylinders are up to 60% lighter than our steel cylinders. Hydraulic Jacks are another option for jobs with limited space, like repositioning of machines and mounting tools.
Shaft and Pulley Alignment Computers & Equipment
Use alignment computers and lasers to accurately align shafts and pulleys in different types of industial machinery. Pre-cut alignment shims allow for precise machine alignment to get the best performance from your machine. PAT alignment lasers allow you to quickly see pulley alignment by shining a laser on top of belt grooves. Our alignment equipment is meant for professional use and is easy to operate by a single person for fast, precise measurments and alignment.
Thomson Linear Motion
Thomson's Super Smart Ball Bushing™ Bearings & Pillow Blocks
QBC is a distributor of Thomson products. We carry thomson super & super smart ball bushing™ bearings & pillow blocks, 60 case quick shafts, shafting products and support blocks. Open or close type bearings are available to buy in this section. Shafts are made of steel or stainless steel and come as solid, tubular or predrilled types.
