Maximise performance and minimise downtime
Material handling is fundamental to a business’s success in manufacturing, processing and shipping products to market. Efficient systems maintain performance over time, keeping production moving and to ensure this, conveyor components need to be high quality.
BNL have over 40 years’ experience designing and manufacturing plastic conveyor bearings for material handling, food processing and industrial machinery systems. Our range includes end cap bearings, sealed end cap bearings, skate wheel bearings and wheels and rollers in speciality materials that can withstand harsh chemicals and extreme temperatures.
We also design and manufacture custom conveyor bearings for proprietary systems – extending load capability, or including features such as gear teeth, sprockets or pulley profiles.
Made of primarily Acetal and stainless steel balls, our plastic bearings are resistant to the types of corrosion suffered by low grade materials and metal bearings when exposed to cleaning products during wash downs, for example in food processing. Our speciality material bearings are made of PEEK and UHMWPE with glass, PE or ZO balls, for when the conveyor system needs to withstand harsh chemicals and extreme temperatures, such as in glass and electronics production.
Acetal is a naturally lubricated material, so BNL’s plastic conveyor bearings do not need lubrication, minimising the risk of product contamination, reducing maintenance time needed to replace it and preventing debris from forming a grinding paste that can reduce operational life of the bearing.
BNL use manufacturing tech-niques, specifically developed for plastic bearing design and production, to produce bearings that have excellent wear rates in comparison to other bearings on the market. By reducing the requirement for maintenance and lessening bearing wear in conveyor systems, BNL bearings ensure continual product supply at optimum performance whilst avoiding costly downtime.
