When it comes to the design of an application, size matters. Certain equipment and machinery require bearing solutions that place an emphasis on high accuracy and low friction without taking up too much space. While that may seem like a lot to ask, SSB Bearings has just the products for you.

What are SSB Bearings?

SSB stands for Slim Section Bearings, which are also known as thin section bearings. No matter the name, these products are designed with a compact design and minimal weight to fit where other types of bearings won’t.

While Ritbearing works with companies across the world to provide a variety of quality bearing solutions, SSB Bearings is based in the U.S. In addition to using materials procured in the States, SSB also provides customers with other services, such as refurbishing and inspecting both thin section and slewing ring bearings. SSB is also DFARS compliant with certifications for all components kept on file.

  • Food Processing
  • Medical
  • Machine Tool
  • Satellite

  • Robotics
  • Military Turrets
  • Material Handling
  • Textile Machinery
