With the end of this year approaching, we’re guessing that many business owners are finalizing their budgets for the new year. If business looks promising, your new budget may be increasing from the previous year’s, or you may be tightening it if things have been on a downward trend.
No matter what your projections for the next year look like, if your company has equipment that regularly needs to replace ball bearings, such as equipment with industrial electric motors, you may want to make 2018 the year you upgrade to ceramic hybrid ball bearings.
Your company may be one that is tightening the budget this year and trying to spend less in all of your budget categories. Upgrading to ceramic hybrid ball bearings might not seem like a good idea right now, since ceramic hybrid ball bearings tend to be more expensive than steel ball bearings. But given the longevity of ceramic hybrid ball bearings, they can be an excellent investment for budget-conscious business owners. Ceramic hybrid ball bearings can last up to ten times longer than traditional steel ball bearings, and they can also help your equipment run more efficiently, since the ceramic balls manufactured by CBR are rounder, lighter, and smoother than steel balls, and produce less friction.
Yes, you’ll pay more up front, but in the long run, you will likely save money, since you won’t have to replace the bearings as often. In addition, the high-quality ceramic hybrid ball bearings from CBR may actually be more affordable than you think, since we sell our products directly to consumers, so you avoid having to pay for any “middleman” profits.
If 2017 was a good and profitable year for your company, you might want to consider taking some of that profit and investing back into your company in the form of equipment improvements. Upgrading your equipment’s existing steel ball bearings with ceramic hybrid ball bearings is a great idea for all of the reasons mentioned above and will also set up your company to be even more profitable in the next year due to better functioning equipment that suffers from less downtime.
If your equipment needs bearings that are common to industrial electric motors, we likely have them in stock right now, ready to ship out from our California headquarters. If you need a less common size, we can build it for you within a relatively short amount of time. All of our ceramic hybrid ball bearings have our signature high-quality, aerospace-grade balls that won’t chip or fracture.
If you have any questions about our products, or about ceramic hybrid ball bearings in general, please don’t hesitate to contact us by phone or through our website. We look forward to hearing from you!
