McGill patented the famous CAMROL® cam follower bearing more than 60 years ago; it’s still the leader, offered today in over 1,400 different combinations and configurations. McGill has three plants in Indiana, plus one in Taiwan to serve global markets.

Leader Company is the world leader on the bearings market with other major international companies reseller the Schaeffler Group, SKF,Timken, NSK, NTN, and JTEKT.

Estimates that the top 6 world bearing manufacturers represent about 60% of the global rolling bearing market, while the group of Chinese bearing companies, including small and larger ones, represents around 20% around the world, with more than 80% of their sales in Asia, less than 10% in Europe and less than 7% in the Americas. The remaining 20% includes many smaller regional and niche bearing competitors.

Radial deep groove ball bearings are the most common rolling bearing type, accounting for almost 30% of world bearing demand. Other major ball bearing types include angular contact ball bearings, self-aligning ball bearings, thrust ball bearings and automotive wheel hub ball bearing units. Roller bearings account for less than half of worldwide rolling bearing sales. Roller bearings are named after the roller shape, such as cylindrical roller bearings, needle roller bearings, tapered roller bearings and spherical roller bearings. All of these are available for loads acting across the shaft (radial bearings) and for loads that are parallel with the shaft (thrust bearings). The largest roller bearing family is the tapered roller bearing, with almost 20% of the world bearing market.

The unmounted bearing assembly consists of hardened precision ground inner and outer raceways. They also have either full complement or separated needle, ball, tapered, or cylindrical rolling elements. These elements are constructed with an integral stud or precision ground bore.

Cam follower bearings provide an antifriction solution for translating rotation to linear motion. They also support either pure radial or combination thrust loads, depending on the rolling elements types.

The McGill® CAMROL® full complement needle bearings feature black oxide-treated bearing steel. They are available in two basic mounting styles for use in mechanical automation or linear motion applications.
McGill® CAMROL® full complement needle bearings feature 400 series stainless steel material. They are available in two basic mounting styles for use in mechanical automation or linear motion applications.
TRAKROL® bearings feature black oxide treated bearing steel. They utilize either a precision ball or tapered roller bearing insert for longer operating life under combination radial and thrust loads.
McGill Heavy Duty CAMROL® bearings are full complement cylindrical roller bearings. They feature black oxide treated bearing steel, available in two mounting styles – stud or yoke. They are used in mechanical automation or linear motion applications.
Special-Duty CAMROL bearings are available. They feature black oxide treated bearing steel in both inch and metric sizes.

Our MCGILL and ROLLWAY unmounted bearing brands each have acquired more than 100 years of bearing industry experience. The MCGILL® branded product offerings include CAMROL®, TRAKROL®, CAGEROL®, GUIDEROL®, and SPHERE-ROL® bearings. They provide solutions for a wide variety of industry applications.

The Rollway® brand of bearings come in many varieties in radial and thrust designs, including:

• Cylindrical Roller Bearings
• Tapered Roller Bearings
• Spherical Roller Bearings

Cam follower bearings provide an antifriction solution for translating rotation to linear motion or supporting either pure radial or combination thrust loads depending on the rolling elements types.
Cylindrical Roller refers to the rolling unit. In this case, Cylindrical Roller type bearing in either Radial or Thrust style bearings.
Needle Roller Bearings are very similar to Cylindrical Roller Bearings. The main difference is the length to width ratio of the rolling elements. This allows a higher load capacity in a similar sized envelope.
Radial ball bearings consist of an inner and outer ring with a retainer that contains a number of precision balls.
Unmounted bearing assembly of through-hardened inner and outer raceways with single or double spherical rolling elements. These are separated by a steel or brass retainer and are available with several sealing options.
Tapered Roller bearings have the same standard features as the cylindrical bearings. The difference is found in the rolling elements in Radial or Thrust style bearings.

CRES bearings address various industries and applications by providing multiple solutions utilizing a variety of materials and sealing elements. CRES assists customers in meeting HACCP (Hazardous Analysis and Critical Control Point) procedures and stringent plant cleaning requirements. These include CIP (Clean in Place) and SIP (Steam in Place) guidelines.

McGill® CAMROL® full complement needle bearings feature 400 series stainless steel material. They are available in two basic mounting styles for use in mechanical automation or linear motion applications.
Sealmaster® PN Gold Mounted Ball Bearings feature a high-performance seal, 316 stainless steel or high strength composite housings, in many housing and locking styles. These are useful for wash down applications where corrosion resistance is critical.
System Plast mounted bearing supports offer good protection during wash-down. They are available in a variety of composite materials and housing styles. They also come with modular accessories to protect the bearing.

Unmounted bearings are offered in a variety of types and styles. These include cam followers, radial bearings, and thrust bearings. They are all available with a variety of options and clearances.

Mounted bearings are available with a variety of sizes and options; including industry specific specials that are problem solvers.

Aerospace and specialty bearings are designed to solve unique problems that go beyond standard product capabilities.
Mounted bearings are available in a variety of sizes and options, including industry-specific designs that are real problem solvers.
Unmounted bearings are offered in a variety of types and styles. These include cam followers, radial bearings, and thrust bearings. They are all available with a variety of options and clearances.
CRES (Corrosion Resistant Engineered Solution) bearings address a wide range of industries and applications. They assist customers in meeting HACCP procedures and stringent cleaning such as CIP and SIP guidelines.

The industrial original equipment bearing markets accounted for almost 40% of world demand and included manufacturers of light and heavy industrial machines and equipment, as well as aerospace, off-highway and railway vehicles. Sales through distributors (industrial distribution and the independent vehicle aftermarket) maintained around 30% of world bearing demand, of which around 25% is related to the vehicle service market and around 75% to the industrial market.
The Americas now represent slightly more than 20% of global demand, of which the USA, Canada and Mexico together account for about 80%. In South America, Brazil is the major market and makes up more than 50% of regional demand. Asia’s share of the world bearing market grew the most year-on-year and accounted for more than 50% compared with less than 30% fifteen years ago. China’s share of the total world bearing market grew heavily to about 30%. Japan’s share of the world bearing market accounts for slightly more than 10%. Other Asian markets with sizeable bearing sales account for about 10%, including India, Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan and South Korea. The Chinese bearing market, which remains the largest of the emerging markets, is very fragmented, with the main international bearing companies accounting for about one third of the market, while the other two thirds of the market consists of a host of local manufacturers. Some of the largest include: Wafangdian (ZWZ), Luoyang (LYC), Harbin (HRB), Zhejiang Tianma (TMB), Wanxiang Qianchao, and C&U. The Indian bearing market accounts for less than 5% of the world bearing market. The players in that market include international manufacturers and several local manufacturers such as NEI, NRB, ABC and TATA.
