Loader Slot Bearings
An alternative plain bearing design that facilitates faster maintenance and reduced downtime for high-wear applications.
Loader slot bearings enable ball replacement without the need for bearing removal, an invaluable feature in mechanical links such as engine mounts, which experience vibratory or static loads that produce small relative motion between the ball and race. We manufacture loader slots in spherical bearings and two-piece rod ends. The entire product family consists of standard catalog items that include fully interchangeable Stellite® balls and nitride-coated spherical race inner diameters, and custom engineered solutions for applications with demanding performance requirements.
- Premium and exotic bearing alloys
- Special surface treatments and coatings, including RoHS-compliant options
- Integral features for unlimited design options

Bearing Customization and New Product Development
In addition to providing you with standard products, we can customize bearings to work outside the usual spectrum of load, temperature, fatigue resistance, and angular misalignment. If you are designing a new aircraft subsystem, our product engineers can assist you with bearing selection, design, and engineering.
For heightened performance challenges, our applications engineering department may involve the New Product Development Center to identify and develop a unique solution.
