Oil Lubricated Bearings

AMB began engineering and producing oil lubricated
bearings over 70 years ago and has since become
the premier supplier of these bearings to the US
Navy and our allies around the world.

Our bearings are built to customers’ specific
requirements and can be configured in many ways.
We have produced these bearings in weights from
a few pounds to over 7000, pounds and all
structures can be designed to combatant and grade
A shock-qualified requirements.

Pictured on this page is an example of a line shaft
bearing commonly used in both commercial and
military applications. It features a self-aligning
internal spherical bearing shell and provisions to
lubricate its internal parts from power taken off
the shaft. Our internal oil disc pump mechanism
eliminates the need for external oil pumps or

At AMB we design, engineer, and produce these
bearings in house. All design data, documnetation
and contract information is kept at our facilities in
archives for the entire service life of the machine
or vessel.

At AMB, we put exacting design and detail into every part, component, or system we engineer. After an initial design is modeled and rendered, in-depth design reviews are carried out analyzing all aspects of form, fit and function, as well as human factors, risk, and parts replacement of our design. This is why AMB has one of the easiest, lowest cost-of-ownership bearings in the world today.
