For more than 2 decades, Hartford Technologies has been a preferred supplier of needle bearing retainers to leading OEMs and Tier 1s, for both standard and custom products.
Hartford Technologies manufactures a wide variety of needle bearing retainers for custom bearing assemblies. A needle bearing uses needle rollers, rather than balls, as its rolling elements.
Our retainers can be manufactured from chrome steel or virtually any type of stainless steel for corrosive atmospheres or severe applications. As an alternative to stainless steel, these retainers can also be manufactured from engineered plastics such as Nylon or Acetal with fillers that increase the strength and/or lubricity of the part for special applications.
