Bower bearings got its start in 1904 when R.F. Bower’s new thrust-controlling roller bearing proved extremely successful at ensuring that horse-drawn carriages didn’t lose wheels through high-speed turns. Today, NTN-Bower Corporation is one of the largest manufacturers of precision roller bearings across North America. Specializing in serving the transportation, construction, and agricultural markets, the company bolsters its industrial customers who require top-quality precision bearings.
Now one of the largest manufacturers of precision bearings in North America, Bower bearings focuses primarily on serving the transportation, agricultural, and construction markets, as well as industrial clients who need premium quality bearings and parts. Bower also continues to expand its product lines and improve its offerings, now including fan housings, mass weights, HUB and HUR units, and other bearing-related parts.
For 100 years now, Bower roller bearings and products have been recognized as superior in the industry in terms of precision and performance. Over this span of years, new products have been developed and improvements made, through constant pressing of boundaries and implementation of new technologies and new materials.
Important breakthroughs in cylindrical and tapered roller bearings include the following:
- Honing of raceways
- Hot forged powder metal bearing components
- Hot pressed silicon nitride cylindrical roller bearings
- Signature bearings
- Spherical roller heads for tapered roller bearings
- Crowned cylindrical and tapered rollers
- Cold-formed tapered roller bearing rings
- Electron beam welded one-piece steel cages for cylindrical roller bearings
- Two piece, ultrasonically-joined Fibron cages for cylindrical roller bearings
These firsts have paved the way for today's vehicles and industrial and farm machinery to run more reliably and over a longer period of time.
