Metric 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 for customers in the global marketplace…...Metric GenII®. Metric GenII® Semi-Precision conveyor bearing design is simply a better value than competitor machined Semi-Precision conveyor bearings and a cost effective upgrade from commercial Non-Precision conveyor bearings.

This is the Metric GenII® value to you:
  • Metric Sized GenII® Options
    Are available for your international operations and customers. Use our Website bearing Selector or Bearing Index to find the international sizes that meet your needs. FRANTZ offers conveyor bearings that are fully metric dimensioned and conveyor bearings that have certain parts dimensioned in English and other parts in metric measurements. We also offer a full range of round bores that are popular in global markets. Finally we offer several non-precision metric conveyor bearing options that can be found on the Bearing Index.

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

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

    • Metric GenII® 80kg Bearing
      600 SFM
    • Metric GenII® 135kg Bearing
      750 SFM

    • Metric GenII® are quieter than competitive Non-Precision bearings.

    • Metric GenII® 80kg Bearing
      7x quieter
    • Metric GenII® 136kg Bearing
      8x quieter

  • IronGrip Carbon Steel Housing
    Swaged tight will outperform plastic housings and provides FRANTZ® Metric GenII® conveyor bearing assemblies with superior load capacities from 80kg to 136kg. 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 the Metric GenII® Core bearing is made from specially formulated material that discharges any accumulated static electricity, improves concentricity, and ensures quiet operation vs Semi-Precision and Non-Precision conveyor bearings with machined metal inner races.

  • 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°C to 149°C. FRANTZ® 14 is used in our Metric GENII Semi Precision conveyor bearings as well as most other FRANTZ conveyor bearings and conveyor wheels. It provides very good corrosion protection and a substantial noise reduction (up to 6 db) compared to standard greases.
