Hi, this is John Criswell. Welcome to Manufacturing Marvels.

The physics of bearings are simple: to reduce friction between moving and stationary parts. But achieving maximum efficiency and durability in bearings is anything but simple. That’s why there’s Waukesha Bearings.

Waukesha Bearings is a global leader in engineered fluid film bearing and sealing technologies. It’s these bearings that keep large turbomachinery and other high-performing rotating equipment operating smoothly for OEMs and end users in Oil & Gas, Power Generation, and Defense.

At its world class manufacturing plants, including the one in Antigo, Wisconsin, Waukesha custom-engineers bearings to meet the unique requirements of an application. What all the bearings provide in common is low power consumption, reduced temperatures, and optimized reliability and efficiency.

This performance is made possible by expert engineering, proprietary designs, state of the art CNC technologies, and highly skilled machinists who produce bearings to the tightest tolerances day after day.

ISO quality standards assure customers of a consistent, precision product—even customers with as exacting requirements as the U.S. military.

Rotordynamic analysis is another way Waukesha optimizes equipment performance. Utilizing comprehensive analytical tools and proprietary codes, Waukesha validates original builds, diagnoses problems, and designs solutions.

For more than seventy years, Waukesha has engineered superior bearing systems that withstand the harshest operating conditions. It continues to develop new, innovative technologies to meet evolving industry demands.
