    Standard bearings are more frequently used in the market, leaving only slight gains in performance, therefore we create customized solutions for more specific demands.

    By merging various machine elements into an assembly, we create tailor-made system solutions with higher performance, less downtime, reduced maintenance and space in response to our customers wishes.
