High Volume Thrust Washers
At Northern Industrial Manufacturing we have always focused on traditional production or higher volume products. For years our customers have trusted Northern Industrial Manufacturing when it comes to the supply of their high volume production thrust washers. Many in the purchasing community consider thrust washers to be the same as a general commodity washer you could get at a hardware store. Thrust washers produced by Northern Industrial Manufacturing are predominantly used as a race that supports frictionless bearings. Because of this, there is an increased precision required when it comes to the thickness, flatness and parallelism specifications. At Northern Industrial Manufacturing our high volume thrust washers, with their precision, quality and tolerances could not be further from your conventional washer.
Traditionally the Northern Industrial value has been much higher on heavier duty applications that are used to spread a rotating load over a large surface area. In many cases our product is selected over needle bearings or other anti -friction bearing choices due to:
- Ease of Assembly
- Cost Effectiveness
- Lead Time
Northern Industrial thrust washers have been a trusted choice by engineers in high volume applications such as automotive transmissions, differentials, and transfer cases since 1978.
