The idea – Link-Belt – was born in 1874 when William Dana Ewart, a young farm implement dealer in Belle Plaine, Iowa, conceived an idea of a square detachable “link” for a chain belt … a “linked belt.”

Over the next several years, Ewart was relentless in pursuing his idea of using link-belt chain as a foundation for all types of power transmission and materials-handling equipment. It was this driving ambition and the continuous innovation of the link-belt that led to the founding of the Link-Belt Machinery Company in 1880 and the Link-Belt Engineering Company in 1888.

Around the turn of the decade, these fledgling Link-Belt companies developed the ancestor of today’s Link-Belt construction equipment … the first wide-gauge, steam-powered, coal-handling clamshell crane. Decades of growth and consolidations followed.

Today, the Link-Belt Bearing Division’s principal product line consists of cylindrical roller bearings, ball bearings and ball bearing units, self-aligning spherical roller bearings and spherical roller bearing units; babbittt and bronze sleeve bearing units and takeups. All in a wide range of sizes suitable for practically all industrial requirements.
