... Roll Easy with FRANTZ®
GEN II® Semi-Precision Conveyor Bearings
Inspired by European designs, FRANTZ engineers improved them and developed technology that led to the next generation of Semi-Precision conveyor bearings built here in the USA…...GenII®. GenII® Semi-Precision conveyor bearing design is clearly a better value than competitor machined Semi-Precision conveyor bearings and competitively priced for a very cost effective upgrade from Commercial Unground Non-Precision conveyor bearings.

This is the GenII® value to you:
  • GenII® Core Bearing
    Is designed to far exceed CEMA standards providing longer life at heavier load ratings. GenII® bearings will roll beyond 10M revs which is 10x CEMA standards. Stamped and grooved outer races ensure that the FRANTZ specified specialty ball complement by Sterling® Steel Ball rolls truer and lasts longer than Commercial Unground Non-Precision conveyor bearings. A GenII® bearing will deliver 1/10th the lifetime cost compared to conveyor rollers made with commercial Non-Precision conveyor bearings.

  • GenII® Metric Sized Options
    Are available for your international operations and customers. Use our Website bearing Selector or Bearing Index to find the international size that meets your needs.

  • GenII® Steps Up and Rolls Faster and Quieter
    The Semi-Precision design allows for higher speeds normally reserved for Precision conveyor bearings. Our GenII® bearings will meet CEMA standards at the following continuous speeds.

    • GenII® 300 lb. Bearing -- 750 SFM

    • GenII® 620 lb. Bearing -- 360 SFM

  • GenII® are quieter than comparable Commercial Non-Precision bearings.

    • GenII® 300 lb. Bearing -- 8x quieter

    • GenII® 620 lb. Bearing -- 8x quieter

  • IronGrip Carbon Steel Housing
    Swaged tight will outperform plastic housings and provides FRANTZ® GenII® conveyor bearing assemblies with superior load capacities from 300 lb. to 620 lb. The quality of your conveyor bearing mount is directly proportional to the life of your conveyor bearing. Click for FRANTZ Conveyor Bearing Mounting Specifications. FRANTZ has further designed tooling to provide you with that quality mount for your rollers. Click for Swage Fit Conveyor Bearing Mounts. Simply put, with FRANTZ you get the whole package and you have peace of mind that our conveyor bearing assembly will carry the load and will not walk out of your roller.

  • Polymer Insert
    Pressed into select GenII® bearings is made from specially formulated material that discharges any accumulated static electricity, dampens vibration and ensures quiet operation. This feature is exclusive to our GenII® 300 lb. series.

  • Premium Blended Grease
    Lubrication plays a critical role in the life and performance of conveyor bearings. FRANTZ has worked with its petroleum supplier to custom blend grease to our specification. FRANTZ® 14 provides superior performance over a wide temperature range from -40°F to 300°F. FRANTZ® 14 is used in our light duty GenII® Semi-Precision conveyor bearings as well as most light duty conveyor bearings and conveyor wheels. It provides very good corrosion protection and a substantial noise reduction (up to 6 db) compared to standard greases. For our heavier duty GenII® 620lb conveyor bearings and other large commercial unground conveyor bearings, we have selected a state of the art lithium based complex grease to match tougher operating environments, especially when used in higher temperatures while also providing excellent mechanical stability. This grease has been formulated with a special additive package which insures high film strength, and extreme pressure and anti-wear properties. Recommended continuous operating range is from -22°F to 355°F.
