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?
Tapered Roller Bearings
Tapered roller bearings feature tapered inner and outer ring raceways with tapered rollers arranged between them, angled so the surface of the rollers converge at the axis of the bearing. These bearings are unique in that, unlike most bearings that … [Read more...] about What do you know about Tapered Roller Bearings?
