Trolley Bearings 

Trolley bearings are used in trolley systems for overhead suspension and movement of loads. Lutco’s trolley bearing components are designed from a variety of steel types such as carbon and stainless steel balls and raceways to properly handle the specific application’s requirements. We produce custom trolley bearings for a variety of trolley applications, from industrial applications to smaller tracks for moving equipment, rolling doors, curtains in conference rooms & offices, garment racks and more. 

Thrust Bearings for Chain Hoist Hook Swivels

Hoists are common material handling equipment used in a wide range of industries including construction, manufacturing, automotive, and others. Hoists are designed to lift or lower material. Demand for hoists has accelerated as manufacturers automate their process in order to increase production output. Our thrust bearings for chain hoist hook swivels differ from the industry standard in that they are produced as a unitized assembly. The stamped components are manufactured and assembled here at Lutco, for a better cost-savings to you. Our thrust bearings are highly durable and long-lasting, making them ideal for chain hoist hook swivels in even the most heavy-duty applications.
