Lifting Equipment: Components and Bearings

Your lifting equipment carries unique loads every day. WD Bearings ensures you have the right bearings to support them.

What Is Lifting Equipment?

Lifting gear or equipment is any tool that helps you lift industrial loads. Perhaps the most well-known example of lifting equipment is the forklift, but this category also includes heavy equipment like cranes, telehandlers, and passenger lifts.

The Physical Influence of Bearings in Lifting Equipment

Bearings are found in nearly every piece of machinery in a manufacturing facility, as they play an important role in moving and lifting processes. When your equipment creates a risk of slowing down your customer’s production, it’s worth looking at your lift bearings to see if they can be improved. When it’s time to redesign them, WD Bearings offers a wide selection of custom bearings for lifting equipment that keeps your most important considerations in mind.
