The split roller bearing was invented at the beginning of the 20th century and has been an industry stalwart ever since. Split roller bearings are renowned throughout industry for their ability to improve efficiency by reducing downtime, resulting in increased production. They are highly regarded for saving time during installation, inspection and maintenance for end-users, whilst also offering simplified machine and shaft design for equipment manufacturers. Essential for applications where bearing locations are trapped or access is limited, split roller bearings also eliminate the need to remove ancillary equipment from the shaft when installing or replacing the bearing.
The design of the split roller bearing has remained largely unchanged for over one hundred years… until now!
As a company primarily founded around the split roller bearing Bowman, along with the Bowman Group, have developed a split roller bearing with significantly increased load capacities with an innovative new design which incorporates separate radial and axial elements. We have updated the split roller bearing for the modern world by extending its operating envelope into high thrust load applications that cannot be covered by existing split roller bearings.
The Bowman Split Roller Bearing is designed and manufactured in the UK and is offered with price and numerous performance advantages over existing split roller bearings as well as exceptional technical support through Bowman Advanced Engineering – the technical wing of the Bowman Group.
