Scratching more than the surface. Action Bearing now serving the mining industry

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS (September 30, 2013)…Action Bearing a Boston based bearing company catering to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets throughout the world now supplies bearings and related products to the Mining industry.

“The mining industry combines the challenges of harsh environments, extremely high load capacities and the need to operate where downtime is not an option. These are bearing intensive operations whether it be for a bucket wheel, tunnel borer, vibrating screen, conveyor bearings or transmission bearings for off road dump trucks,” said Steve Katz, president of Action Bearing, Inc. “Action Bearing products can be real difference makers for mining companies looking to improve efficiency and reduce maintenance costs.”

Adds Katz, “We recommend split spherical or cylindrical roller bearings which cut down on maintenance costs and dramatically reduce downtime. These are especially effective in difficult to access locations. For articulation/swivel joints we now recommend a combination of a high-load capacity four-point bearings used with a maintenance free spherical plain.”

Action Bearing Marketing Specialist Bill Zylicz is responsible for the Mining Industry division. He can be reached by e-mail at or by calling 1.866.995.8762.

In a proud tradition, the same families that started the company in 1957 keep Action Bearing rolling by specializing in bearings for OEM and MRO markets throughout the world. Action Bearing’s highly knowledgeable staff, operating from their 23,000 square foot facility, provides bearings ranging in size from 3mm to tunnel-boring 15-foot-diameter giants.
