Regal Power Transmission Solutions, a part of Regal Beloit Corporation, recently announced that it had completed a full redesign of its SealMaster Large Bore Performance Gold Line Mounted Ball Bearing. Presented as a way to save time, reduce costs, and improve performance, the SealMaster line’s features are available in several shaft sizes – 2 7/16” and 2 11/16” – and allow for easier maintenance by allowing for faster, more efficient bearing removal.

Ian Rubin, the Director of Marketing at Regal Benoit, said that, “Through years of customer discussions, on-site installation and removal observations, it was evident that the burr created by the setscrew had a significant impact on the time required to remove mounted bearings. With time being a very valuable commodity in plant operation, we recognized the importance of developing a solution that reduces downtime and lost production, in turn potentially saving thousands of dollars.”

Because of the company’s innovative design, the bearing is able to reduce damage to the shaft which, of course, helps to reduce – or eliminate – the cost of future repairs. As a leading provider of electric motion controls and power transmission components, Regal has long been the go-to source for high-quality ball bearings, couplings, and drive components. The company’s commitment to solving common problems through constant innovation is commendable and, in large part, one of the primary reasons that the team at Bearing Service enjoys working with them.
