The new site features the company’s full product catalog which also serves as a handy reference tool and a “Technical Toolbox” chock full of technical definitions, conversion charts and a diagnostic program for bearing failure.

Online catalog
The new online catalog enables visitors to quickly find what they need and check if a particular bearing or other part is a stock item. Searches can be done by product category or part number. The online catalog serves as a super handy desktop reference tool by providing technical drawings, specs with load ratings, and the ability to compare parts side by side. This is all available for download with no password required. This new catalog features an expanded range of products from 3mm miniature bearings to 12” bore split spherical roller bearings and Oil Seals.

The site also features an ‘Industry Solutions’ section where the customer can find products and information for sixteen of the major markets they serve nationwide

Technical toolbox
Bearing failure analysis can be quickly performed in-house with the help of Emerson Bearing’s online Failure Analysis diagnostic program found in the Technical Toolbox. Customers can now go online, identify the problem they are having with their bearing; determine why it failed and how to correct it.

Also within the Technical Toolbox page are dimensional and conversion charts.
Need to compare the load carrying ability of different types of bearings? Looking for inch, decimal and metric conversion? Visitors to will be able to obtain all the necessary technical data and engineering information.

Bearing Detective
For those who are unable to read the numbers on an old bearing, Emerson Bearing offers an online “Bearing Detective” program that asks all the right questions and then tracks down the bearing that is required.

“Our sleek, new sophisticated website is easier to use than ever and includes our unique ‘Failure Analysis’ diagnostic program and our intelligent ‘Bearing Detective’ program. Customers will find our online catalog of more than 3 million bearings and related parts very user friendly and they can actually download and save it to their desktop to use as a reference.
