In our many years in the bearing manufacturing industry, we’ve come to find that certain habits among motor repair technicians die hard. Many who have always used steel ball bearings to repair motors are reluctant to try something else, such as ceramic hybrid ball bearings. We understand that new products and technologies seem to come and go almost on a daily basis, so making the switch to something you aren’t as familiar with can feel risky, but ceramic hybrid ball bearings are a tried and true product with many fantastic benefits when used in industrial electric motors.
As we mentioned in our last blog post, a recent article in Currents, the Electrical Apparatus Service Association’s (EASA) publication, says that using ceramic hybrid ball bearings is “…the absolute best means to insulate the ODE,” and that they are “…a very durable bearing with a service life up to 10 times longer than a standard bearing.”
Ceramic hybrid ball bearings have been extensively tested and proven to be better than traditional steel ball bearings in pretty much every category. By offering them to your motor repairs customers, you are differentiating yourself from other service companies that may not offer them. Many of your customers will appreciate that you work with products that will give their equipment better performance and less downtime.
If you are a motor repair company that has a need for large diameter bearings, you may have had trouble finding them from other ceramic bearing companies. However, at CBR, we stock bearings in many different sizes, up to 100 mm shaft size, for same-day delivery. For less common sizes, we have a very fast turnaround time on custom orders. Fast turnaround from us means a faster turnaround for your customers. And as you know, when a customer has a motor that needs repairing, long wait times are not an option!
If you don’t like having to go through bearing distributors to get the bearings you need, you are always welcome to contact CBR directly. You can get the exact bearings you need for the industrial electric motor you’re working on without having to go through a middleman. This saves you both time and money.
Contact us at CBR Bearing by phone or by email to see how we can help support your business from the bearing side of things. We’d love to partner with you and be your go-to bearing company. We are also happy to answer any questions you may have about ceramic hybrid ball bearings in general or about CBR’s bearings in particular. We hope to hear from you soon!
