Always innovating on your behalf
You need a solution that meets all your challenges. That is why we’re working to develop new ideas that answer those needs. For example, the dynamic load rating is one of the most common factors considered by customers when choosing rolling bearings, but bearing performs in the field is also impacted by the bearing’s material composition, surface finish and contact profile. Additionally, application it, lubrication, sealing and mounting are all essential in maximizing the bearings service life. We understand the practicality of this situation and we’ve developed a solution that addresses these needs.
You told us we listened
“I need more reliable, better
performing tapered roller bearings”
One that supporting higher loads. Survives challenging conditions. Resists
contamination. Enables easier mounting. Maintains clearance pre-load set
during mounting. Provides a longer life.
For pinions, and fluid pumps
One that copes with inadequate lubrication. Achieves higher speeds with lower friction. Supports heavy loads. Maintains high stiffness under preload. Offers low friction during running-in.
For truck and trailer wheels
One that provides refillable lubricant film formation for the rolling contacts. Copes with misalignment and cornering load. Performs successfully at low/medium speeds and with varying loads.
