Last year, CBR was contacted by a new customer—a company that manufactures large dynamometers for heavy industrial applications, and for clients in the aerospace industry and for large energy and utility companies. The dynamometer manufacturer was having trouble locating the bearings they needed for their highly specialized machines. None of the large bearing manufacturing companies made the size they needed (110mm bore), so they reached out to CBR, hoping our boutique bearing manufacturing company could help.
Since 110mm bore bearings are large, specialty bearings, this wasn’t something we already had on our shelves, like we do with some of the more standard-sized bearings. So, we had to take on this order as a custom project. We decided to take a standard steel bearing in the size this customer needed and “remanufacture” it into a CBR Pro-Series Ceramic Hybrid bearing. Since we have our own on-site bearing lab, the process, which probably would have taken a large bearing manufacturer months to complete, took us just four days. We shipped it out, and the customer had the custom bearing they needed for their dynamometer within a week!
Our new customer was thrilled, and apparently very satisfied, since they have come back to us for more bearings—placing four sizable orders for ceramic hybrid bearings since that initial one.
At CBR, we’ve been working hard to exceed our customers’ expectations since we were founded in 1994. Many of our first-time customers assume that ceramic hybrid bearings in large or custom sizes will be prohibitively expensive and have a turnaround time of several weeks, or even several months. They always seem to be pleasantly surprised by our low prices and fast turnaround times in comparison to our competitors. In addition, we have excellent customer service and customer support. You can always get someone on the phone who can answer even your most technical questions.
Do you have a need for ceramic hybrid bearings in large or custom sizes? Have you been quoted long turnaround times or extremely high prices by the large bearing manufacturers? Are you having trouble even finding the bearings you need? CBR would love to help you! You don’t need to go through a bearing dealer to purchase from us. We deal directly with the people and companies that use our products.
We have a very high re-order rate from our customers, and many tell us that they very happy with the both the quality and price of our bearings. They never imagined that such high-quality bearings could be so affordable.
We’d love the opportunity to supply you with the bearings you need. Contact us for a quote or to have any of your questions answered about our ceramic hybrid bearings. We look forward to hearing from you!
