Cooper bearings are used in many industrial applications due to their unique 'split-to-the-shaft' design. These bearings excel in those inaccessible areas where routine maintenance can be challenging, helping to improve worker safety and speeding up processes such as re-lubrication and bearing change-outs.
The Cooper bearing comprises a split roller bearing, cartridge, seals and housing. Housings are available in many different designs to suit most industrial environments.
The Cooper bearing can be used in many industries due to the interchangeable nature of bearing types and housings, from the light-duty, compact 100 Series for high operating speeds to the 03/03E Series designed for extreme loading conditions.
The Cooper bearing or split roller bearing was invented in 1907 by Thomas Cooper and is still manufactured on the same site today. Cooper now utilise the latest in manufacturing technology to produce the split bearings, all with the expereince and commitment from a manufacturing team with an average of 15 years length of service.
What sets the Cooper’s split bearings apart from the standard solid bearing is its flexibility. Easier to install, maintain and replace, the split roller bearing is an economical option that can drastically cut your machinery downtime.
