Carter Manufacturing

another example of Carter Manufacturing’s dedication to forging strong relationships with specialist bearing manufacturers from all over the world

Leading provider of bearings and linear products, Carter Manufacturing, has reinforced its commitment to US bearing manufacturer Silverthin by adding more stock ranges to ensure continuity of supply for the company’s flagship product range in the UK and Europe.

The Oxford-based company’s status as the European Master Distributor for ‘Made in the USA’ Silverthin Precision Thin Section Bearings has produced a very successful partnership between the two companies. In addition to having exclusive distribution rights in Europe, they also supply their thin section bearing products to the global market.

The partnership is another example of Carter Manufacturing’s dedication to forging strong relationships with specialist bearing manufacturers from all over the world. Silverthin’s market leading thin section bearings, combined with the difficulty that companies outside the US face when trying to find products made by 100% American-owned companies, made it a natural union.

Silverthin is a specialist bearing manufacturer located just outside Seattle. Their capability provides strength and flexibility without sacrificing reliability, which has resulted in a highly sought after product. Silverthin thin section bearings are perfect for a range of applications but are most commonly used where weight and size are critical design criteria, making thin section bearings the default choice for satellite and communications equipment, rotary tables, slip rings, the aerospace and defence industries, as well as for more commercial applications such as textile machinery, food processing equipment and pipe cutting and welding equipment.

In many applications a single Silverthin four point contact XPO type bearing can replace two radial or angular contact bearings, saving weight, space and cost in bearing component and also assembly time.

Carter Manufacturing insists their experience in solving bearing problems across a range of industries makes them the obvious choice as partner for helping to bring Silverthin’s thin section bearings to market in the UK and Europe.

Karl Brundell, Carter Manufacturing Managing Director, said: ‘We are immensely proud to be the European Master Distributor for Silverthin’s flagship product. The addition of Silverthin’s thin section bearings to our portfolio has been very positive because it has given our customers in the UK and Europe access to a product that is out on its own in terms of quality and precision.

‘The partnership is another sign of our commitment to solving customer engineering problems, and this will help us significantly to continue achieving in this regard,’ he added.
