If you have a special application you can count on Carter to deliver the high precision bearings you need, when you need them. Unlike larger bearing manufacturers, Carter specializes in custom bearings so we can respond to your design and scheduling requirements, often at a lower cost.

We can modify any of our standard, proven high precision bearings to give you the exact design features you want:

- custom materials and finishes

- high/low temperature modifications

- special relube port options

- stud configurations

- special laser-etched markings

- and more...

Just send us your data, drawings or sketches on the types needed and quantities required - we will promptly send you a quote. We have the capacity to make custom bearings in any quantity, including samples for your evaluation and testing on your equipment. And we make a special effort to supply samples as promptly as possible - at moderate cost.

We have produced an exceptionally wide range of special types, including variations of Neverlube Bearings, and various types of Needle, Ball and Roller Bearings, many of them with special features. For example, one special type bearing was developed for garbage truck loaders. Since this involved very severe service with a great deal of dust and grime, frequent weather changes, and intermittent heavy shock loads on the loading device, a very special bearing with a heavy seal was produced for this need and has worked very satisfactorily.

If you have a special bearing need, contact Carter. We know how to meet all your requirements.
