In this video, we speak with John Bacher, bearings manager for Primetals Technologies, at the company’s facility in Warren, OH. Bacher covers the basics about tapered roller bearings, from two-row tapered roller bearings (shown in the video) to four … [Read more...] about How do tapered roller bearings work?
Tapered Roller Bearings
The oil and gas industry continues to push the limits of technology. Deeper wells, harsher environments and more sophisticated drilling approaches all place additional demands on equipment, calling for larger, more powerful and more robust solutions. … [Read more...] about SKF Explorer tapered roller thrust bearings
Put a few tons on your back, climb steep grades, make a few sharp turns and do it over and over again – that’s what’s expected from haulage equipment. Whether it’s articulating trucks or shuttle cars, they move a lot of material without much space to … [Read more...] about Tapered roller bearings for haulage equipment
The confines of underground mining mean that equipment must become more and more productive without increasing size. When downtime ranges between $30,000 and $50,000 an hour, increased uptime means more profit. Longwall shearer cutters … [Read more...] about Tapered roller bearings for long wall shearer
Bearings are internal machine components that are crucial to motion applications. They reduce friction between moving parts by giving a surface something on which to roll rather than slide. Rotary bearings consist of smooth rollers or metal balls and … [Read more...] about Rotary bearings: Answers to common questions
All the forces from the wind act directly on the rotor bearing support in a wind turbine and the rolling bearings are therefore subjected to highly dynamic loads and operating conditions. A range of powertrain designs have established themselves on … [Read more...] about Schaeffler rotor bearings for wind turbines
By Mike Santora Timken and Robbins are collaborating on the tunnel boring machine set to carve a path for the Ohio Canal Interceptor Tunnel in Akron, OH. In this first installment of a two part story, we interviewed the principle engineers on the … [Read more...] about Part 1: Timken and Robbins team up for Ohio tunnel project

Timken … [Read more...] about Timken Expands Product Lines, Updates Catalogs for Housed Units, Seals and Tapered Roller Bearings
Tapered Roller Bearings Tapered roller bearings are built to thrive in demanding environments. Tapered roller bearings are designed with an outer raceway that’s tapered off like a segment of a cone. This shape prevents bearing slippage and allows … [Read more...] about Tapered roller bearings from Ritbearing
There has been a trend in the design of wind turbine gearboxes toward using integrated planet bearings with both Cylindrical Roller Bearings (CRBs) and Tapered Roller Bearings (TRBs). The integrated bearing concept reduces the total number of … [Read more...] about How are integrated bearing assemblies being used in wind turbines?
