Product Engineers Call Upon Emerson Bearing Boston for Bearing Expertise During R&D


Emerson Bearing Boston, providers of bearing and related products for OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets around the globe, is much more than a bearings supplier. The company’s bearing experts often consult with product engineers during product research and development.

Recent design innovations where Emerson Bearing Boston played a key role in the development of specific bearings for robotics and automation in the health care industry include ErgoNurse®, which is a bed repositioning system that enables medical staff to single-handedly reposition patients without manually lifting them. The company also assisted in the development of a custom, thin, air-frame style bearing for a Bostonbased manufacturer of prosthetics.

According to Steve Katz, president of Emerson Bearing Boston, “We often have clients come to us with a specific bearing need. Our prosthetic manufacturing client required a control bearing which allowed for replication of the movement of the ankle. We developed a thin section bearing that is very precise and able to endure high loads at low speed, in other words, a bearing that supports a human’s weight and movement.”

Emerson Bearing Boston’s bearing expertise has also been tapped in the design of the system for the spare tire on the back of Humvee and Hummers.

Katz continued, “Our clients are innovators. They are creating products for the next generation and we’re honored to advise them during product development.”
