Bearings International now has some exciting new products on offer, mounted and unmounted bearings and housings from KML; products for bulk materials handling and cement applications, such as KÖBO’s high-quality, reasonably priced sprocket and chain product range; and ROCOL RTD lubricants for reaming, tapping and drilling operations.

Bearings International KML bearingsKML Bearings, distributed locally by leading supplier Bearings International (BI), offers a range of mounted and unmounted bearings and bearing housings. In addition, it also has automotive-specific products for the passenger and commercial vehicle sectors.

“There is even a product range dedicated to the electric motor industry,” adds product manager, Lucas Pretorius. These bearings are manufactured specifically and carry the ‘Electric Motor Quality’ (EMQ) suffix.

According to Pretorius, KML has proved highly successful in the industrial, OEM, and agricultural markets as a second-tier brand that does not sacrifice quality, while offering significant cost benefits. “We have managed to negotiate better pricing in line with the current economic climate on agriculture-specific and mounted ball bearing units, and are happy to have passed these discounts onto the market,” Pretorius highlights.

With 35 years’ experience in the bearings industry, KML has an in-house research-and-development department. Milestones to date include the first in the industry to introduce a dedicated cleanroom for the manufacture, cleaning, and packaging of EMQ bearings. With a presence in over 50 countries, end users can rest assured that replacements are readily available globally.

Latest developments include the development of an improved version of a harrow disc hub bearing unit for the agricultural market. “We are now finalising the design to ensure an exact fit to the current discs available on the market so that we can offer a simple drop-in solution,” Pretorius explains.

BI has a dedicated engineering department that can offer customers and end users assistance in terms of failure analysis and recommended improvements where necessary, from product selection and recommendations to design improvements.

Products for bulk materials and cement

Also distributed exclusively by BI are engineered and standard chains, sprockets and ancillary products such as outboard rollers, scrapers, and carrier pans used in conjunction with chains from leading manufacturer KÖBO.

Target industries are bulk materials handling, steel, pulp and paper, wood, automotive, escalators, food and beverage, and water treatment.
