Emerson Bearing, a Boston based bearing company catering to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets throughout the U.S., has recently announced a new division to specifically cater to the bearing needs of amusement parks, fitness centers, ski areas and facilities with go karts and golf carts.
Emerson Bearing's customer care representatives in the new Recreation division are trained to accommodate the unique needs of clients in these specific industries. Emerson's 24/7 service and inventory are critical to the operations of many of their clients.
Emerson Bearing's knowledgeable Recreation team assists clients in determining which bearing technologies would be most suitable by taking into consideration the specifications, recommendations, maintenance strategies, fatigue life and wear resistance of the bearing in relation to the application.
Each Recreation division specialty is led by one of Emerson Bearing's industry solutions experts. The amusement industry requires the best quality at a reasonable price, whether it is for a roller coaster or a portable ride. Emerson Bearing provides special solutions such as Polymer lubricants that stop failures and reduce downtime. Bearings for the go and golf cart industry must be able to withstand outdoor environments and for this, Emerson provides mounted units with triple lip seals and ball bearings with full contact sealing. They also provide spherical bushings, spherical roller bearings, tapered roller bearings, adhesives and sealants, rod ends, oil seals and mounted units. Richard Furtado, Emerson Bearing's Marketing Specialist within the Recreation division, capably handles the the requirements of the amusement industry.
Sports equipment, especially that which is found in fitness centers, require high quality, long life and a good price/performance ratio. Joe Falvey, Marketing Specialist in Emerson Bearing's Recreation division caters to the Fitness industry with solutions that include ball bearings, taper roller bearings, spherical roller bearings, oil seals, hydraulic cylinders and pumps.
The key to ski area maintenance is 24-hour service, product knowledge and the ability to find the right bearing at the right price, whether it is for lifts, groomers or bullwheels. Emerson Bearing carries the full line of bearings for Riblet, Yan, Hall and other manufacturers and is a member of the NSAA. Related products that Emerson carries include miniature and instrumentation bearings, oil seals, ball bearings and linear motion. Rick Piracini, Marketing Specialist, oversees special solutions for the Ski industry within Emerson's Recreation division.
As part of their customer care, Emerson's industry experts provide clients with the unique service of "Bearing Failure Analysis" which helps them determine the cause of bearing failure so that they may prevent future failure and predict reliability. Or, if clients desire to do so, they can utilize the Bearing Failure Analysis program within the Technical Toolbox on the Emerson Bearing website.
"Emerson's Recreation division was created to meet increased demand and significant growth in the amusement, fitness and ski markets over the last couple of years. We have three specialists in this division devoted to specifically catering to their needs," noted Steve Katz, president of Emerson Bearing.
