In 1902, William Nice founded one of the first “anti-friction” bearing manufacturing plants. Starting with unground ball types and developing into the ground field, RBC NICE® today produces a complete line of precision ground, semi-ground, and unground bearings and bearing assemblies.
To choose the exact bearing you need, start with the NICE® line of standard inch-dimension, radial, angular contact and thrust ball bearings. Standard series ball bearings can be customized to include many features that can satisfy the demands of many special applications. Our ball bearings are available with special bores, modified outer ring shapes, extended inner rings, locking devices, and flanged housings. Standards can be ordered sealed, shielded, or open, and are offered in ground and semi-ground grades to deliver the most cost effective solution for your application. Even when a standard isn’t the answer, our engineers can deliver an economical, modified standard design that is “fit for purpose.”
