What are WIR bearings?

Wide inner ring bearings, or WIR bearings for short, can have many names depending on the industry and the applications. Other terms names used for WIR bearings include:

  • Insert bearings
  • Transmission bearings
  • Bore bearing inserts 
  • Ball bearing units, and 
  • Adapted radial bearings

Their main application is to constrain relative motion to desired motion only, reducing friction between moving parts. 

These types of bearings benefits include:

  • Higher loads
  • Ease of fitting
  • Versatile applications
  • Able to be fitted with an anti-rotation pin
  • Ease of re-greasing with a Zerk fitting and more

WIR bearings are versatile; however, places they are commonly found include:

  • Agricultural machines and appliances
  • Large-scale printing machines
  • Paper processing machines
  • Timber processing plants
  • Food processing and production machinery
  • Steel processing machinery and more

While they can be used as a stand-alone product, WIR bearings often require a housing to be fitted to machinery and appliances.
