For many companies, it’s common to need a custom bearing solution unlike what’s already available on the market. And because an entirely new product is needed, a short production run is often requested to ensure the right selection was made for the application. Unfortunately, finding a provider that has the flexibility to run smaller, customized jobs can be difficult.
For this reason, PEER Bearing has launched our new FLEXWORKS Center so that customers can request modifications to products that are already in stock. This allows for unmatched speed and flexibility in production. Customers also benefit from our expert engineering team that can walk them through product selection and customization options that are available. And because we don’t require large minimum orders, customers can order the amount that they need without getting stuck with excess inventory taking up shop space.
As far as customization options, customers can choose to modify the addition or removal of grease, shields, seals, and machining snap ring grooves. We can also add lubrication holes, bolt holes and cap mounting, in addition to laser etching, boxing, and labeling bulk items for simplicity. The goal of the FLEXWORKS Center is to make bearing selection a more streamlined process no matter what our customers’ needs are. With these new capabilities, we feel that we are achieving that goal.
