Major Advantages of Kashima Bearings:
Why do we have 30% - 40% of the market in Japan?
Our customers select our bearings for a number of reasons, including quality and variety.
Of course, the main reason is that Kashima Bearings are tailored to the needs of numerous factory environments.
Why Plastic Bearings?
Kashima Bearings Offer:
High-Tech Craftsmanship: Kashima crafts bearings by hand and machine, with care and precision, relying on skill and experience acquired over many decades. We can make bearings to order, for small lots, fairly easily and reasonably. We listen to the customers’ needs, then create the best bearing types from the best plastics for each use-case. Customers return again and again, and we adjust the bearings to the customers’ evolving needs and desires.
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of standard bearing sizes. Other plastic bearing companies use injection-molding. Each bearing is relatively cheap.
Affordable Lot-Sizes: Making a mold is expensive, costing well over $10,000. Such companies demand that a customer purchase at least 100,000 pieces so they can break-even. Many often demand lot-sizes of around 200,000 pieces. At such prices, these companies have a fairly limited number of molds available.
Many More Standard Sizes & Types: Kashima, however, can make plastic bearings for almost all metal-standard sizes, as well as the most unique sizes and shapes.
Greater Range of Materials: Furthermore, we can craft your bearings out of 7 different types of plastic. Injection molding only offers 1 or 2 types. These types simply cannot offer the advantages that our range of materials provides, especially in chemical or extremely wet environments.
So, if you are looking for just the right plastic-bearing made with world-famous Japanese care and service that can’t be found anywhere else, the answer is Kashima.
