BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS (April 9, 2014) … Action Bearing a Boston based bearing company catering to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets throughout the world recently promoted Bob Piracini to senior marketing specialist for its Machine Tools division.

As leader of the Machine Tools division, Piracini and his team will assist clients in determining which bearing technologies would be most suitable by taking into consideration the specifications, recommendations, maintenance strategies, fatigue life and wear resistance of the bearing in relation to the application.

Machine Tool applications require bearings that are designed for rigid, high speed, high precision machine tool spindles. Action Bearing offers super precision bearings, linear motion, timing belts, adhesives and sealants, ball bearings and cylindrical roller bearings. As machine centers operate at higher speeds and demand greater levels of precision, Action Bearing recommends the new generation of bearings made from advanced steels. These provide extended bearing life and increased tolerances. The company offers several brands, such as Barden and NSK which provide this option. Other available options include Sealed bearings for harsh environments.

Piracini has been with the company for 16 years and previously held the position of Marketing Specialist. He attended Suffolk University and is a resident of Wakefield, MA.
