Bearings Incorporated has an extensive Library

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

Our library at Bearings Incorporated is extensive, and we have records from back to the 1920’s.  We have a wide variety of vendors, products, and ages of catalogues.

Even with the many vendor changes throughout the years.  Timken has now bought Fafnir, Torrington, and National Oil Seals.   SKF has purchased Chicago Rawhide seals, and MRC bearings.  SNR Bearings is now NTN.  We are current with the catalogues of today, we also have the accessibility to  refer to the old references as well.  

If you have a Victor seal in your equipment, even though they are no longer in business; don’t despair; we still have the interchange catalogues and may be able to find a suitable replacement.  Our cataloges refer back into the 1920’s, and we have shelves of historical reference catalogues.
