In 1950, FYH began producing bearing housings (rolling bearing units). In a production hall that incorporates cutting-edge technology, FYH’s own spherical bearing production line is in operation, fully automated from machining to quality control. In addition, bearing finishing tolerances are stricter than those of Japanese industrial standards, and FYH brand bearings can adequately cope with demanding operating conditions such as high-speed rotation. There are approximately 700 types of standard bearings alone, and more than 300 types of housings.

FYH continues to be a pioneer in the design of housing technology because we produce our own bearings and housings from material to finished product.FYH’s unique housing bore machining, called “J-fit,” is one of the ideal fits for bearings with housing bores set to tighter tolerances for roundness and sphericity than other companies’ designs. This feature allows the bearing unit to withstand loads from all directions, preventing wear and vibration and extending the life of the bearing. This special “J-joint” is 100% interchangeable with any bearing and any type of housing.
