Take-Up Bearings


Take-up bearings and frames are typically used in conveyor lines. They align conveyor belt tracks and maintain belt tension. Conveyor take-up bearings are manufactured from a variety of materials, but are typically made from cast iron, and feature a chrome steel bearing.

Take-up bearings typically operate belt-driven machines. They are used with blowers and fans, as well as conveyor belts. Businesses in the food-processing, manufacturing, mining, quarrying, construction, and agricultural industries rely on take-up bearings to keep their lines moving efficiently.

Conveyor belts require take-up bearings when it is necessary to adjust the shafts and tighten the belts. We offer bearings with a variety of locking features to suit your needs. 

Narrow-slot take-up bearings, made of pressed stainless steel, provide affordable light-duty functionality. For heavier jobs, many companies choose wide-slot bearings made from iron. These tougher take-up bearings, the better they can handle the shock of large loads and the vibration of heavy machinery.

Conveyor take-up bearings are available in metric and inch sizes and may feature an eccentric locking collar.
