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 do it.
When Timken tapered roller bearings are installed in the wheel ends of haulage equipment, they provide the durability required to handle the extreme radial and thrust loads from hauling tons of payload. Timken precision roller chain helps ensure haulage equipment rolls through some of the toughest environments underground. With the highest dynamic load ratings in the industry and a toolbox of bearing enhancements to combat debris, Timken bearings are designed to deliver the performance customers demand.
Timken has a long history of designing and manufacturing tapered roller bearings. Through material improvements, internal design enhancements and precision manufacturing, Timken continues to set the standard for ratings. With advanced technology engineered into the bearings, performance assessments warrant increases in predicted life across 20 product types. The higher performance ratings translate into greater value, with longer predicted useful bearing life and heavier load-carrying capacity than previous ratings of Timken tapered roller bearings.
Timken engineers work closely with many original equipment manufacturers to develop best-in-class tapered roller bearings for speci c applications such as transmissions, gear boxes, pumps, compressors and other processing equipment. For users, the higher ratings mean increased power density – more performance packed into smaller, lighter bearings that help boost the energy ef ciency of the equipment they help keep in motion.
