  • Horizontal bearings
    Michell Bearings has two ranges of horizontal bearings; the industrial horizontal (IH) series and the heavy duty (HD) series covering a range of shaft diameters....

  • The industrial horizontal (IH) series is a modular range covering shaft diameters from 280mm to 1000mm. The heavy duty (HD) series is specifically designed for applications involving high thrust loads and covers a shaft range from 300mm to 500mm. 

    We can offer bespoke bearing solutions to suit individual project requirements, where required.

    Product applications include:

    • Motors
    • Generators
    • Hydro turbines
