A bearings solution for every application

01 July 2019

Bearings manufacturer Bowman International recently launched its new range of split roller bearings, the JHB Split Bearing, through its subsidiary John Handley Bearings. Combining higher capacities than any other split bearing on the market and interchangeable parts, it has been lauded by the industry press as “the future of split bearings.” Here we take an in-depth look at some of Bowman’s most notable innovations and services.

BowMet heavy duty bearings

In 2015 Bowman teamed up with Materion USA to develop a new range of rolled bearings. The result of this partnership was the BowMet range of spinodal bronze bearings billed as “the biggest advance in plain bearings in more than 70 years”. Manufactured in ToughMet material with outstanding heat and corrosion resistance capabilities and significantly increased load capacity, these bearings are the ideal solution for a huge range of harsh industrial applications including mining and quarrying, heavy construction, motorsport, offshore oil and gas, and marine. 

In addition, the rolling process ensures very little wastage and unrivalled flexibility. The bearings are available as plain or flanged in a variety of standard wall thicknesses from 0.75mm to 2.5mm and are also available in imperial sizes. The range can also be customised to include lubrication grooves, location slots, tabs, holes and pockets, while special and one-off runs can also be produced with minimal or no tooling costs.
