In the recreation industry, manufacturers design and build devices and equipment for a wide range of applications, from fishing gear to golf carts/karts to amusement park rides to ski resort maintenance. In all of these, bearings are key components, requiring the best quality bearings at a reasonable price. Considering the harsh conditions of recreational activities, such as moisture, harsh compounds, high intensity, etc., these components must be carefully constructed to ensure they provide reliable performance. Otherwise, the equipment in which they are installed can fail, which can be catastrophic in some applications.
At DERUNA Bearings, we fully understand the challenges faced by manufacturers and users in the entertainment industry. This knowledge allows us to produce high-quality bearing solutions for virtually any recreational application. Whether you need bearings for golf carts or go-karts, we can provide the right bearing at the right price.
Recreation Industry of Description
Amusement parks–Recreation Industry
Amusement parks require bearings for roller coasters, portable rides, merry-go-rounds and many other attractions. They must be constructed reliably as the components are used frequently throughout the day and can fail and potentially cause injury to people. The entertainment industry needs to offer the best quality, i.e. value, at a reasonable price. Whether it’s a rollercoaster or a portable ride.
Special solutions: polymer lubricants that stop breakdowns and reduce downtime.
Golf carts / go-karts–Recreation Industry
Carts are commonly used on golf courses and country clubs. They are an affordable and environmentally friendly way to get people and materials where they need to go. Bearings used in these vehicles need to be weatherproof to withstand outdoor use. Bearings for the trolley industry must be able to withstand outdoor conditions.
Special solutions: seat units with triple lip seals and ball bearings with full contact seals.
Ski resort maintenance–Recreation Industry
The key to maintaining a ski resort is 24-hour service, product knowledge and the ability to find the right bearing at the right price. Bearings for skiing applications need to be able to operate at low temperatures and high altitudes. In addition, they should be able to carry heavy loads, whether they are used for lifts, lawn mowers or large wheels.
Special solutions: the correct type of bearing must be used to reduce maintenance costs for skis.
Fitness/fishing reels–Recreation Industry
The fitness industry is always making new advances in equipment. However, bearing failure can lead to serious injury, regardless of the type of equipment.
choose quality bearings that are durable, long-lasting and cost effective. Ceramic bearings are used to keep fishing reels running optimally.
The Key Bearings for Recreation Industry
High precision cylindrical roller bearings
Cylindrical roller bearings use a cylinder as the rolling element and are usually available in single or double row designs. These bearings are constructed to withstand large radial loads and are ideally suited to high speed applications requiring high operational accuracy in a bearing-spindle configuration.
Ceramic hybrid spindle bearings
Ceramic hybrid spindle bearings offer higher spindle speeds, higher stiffness and greater resistance to high temperatures. The ceramic balls used in these bearings operate at lower temperatures, resulting in longer lubricant life. They can also operate at lower vibration levels, resulting in increased spindle stiffness.
Angular contact bearings
Angular contact ball bearings have inner and outer raceways that are offset relative to each other in the axial direction, allowing them to carry combined radial and axial loads at the same time. The axial load capacity of these bearings increases as the contact angle becomes larger. The contact angle is the angle between the line connecting the two points in the radial plane where the steel ball is in contact with the raceway.We can supply mini lathe angular contact bearings
Ball screw support bearings
Ball screw support bearings allow precise positioning of workpieces or machine components. These bearings are typically available in a high rigidity and high capacity range, each specifically designed for the application they support. Their specialised geometry allows them to handle large axial loads in both directions.
