Industrial gearbox bearings are reliable and efficient

NKE is promoting its rolling bearings for industrial gearboxes that meet the efficiency and reliability requirements of a wide range of sectors, such as general machinery, mining, material handling systems and heavy machinery.

Industrial gearbox bearings are reliable and efficient

Daniel Thalmann, Application Engineering Manager at NKE explains: "Suitable bearings play a vital role in industrial gearboxes. Speeds, loads and available space are just some of the many factors that must be taken into account when designing a drive system capable of reliably meeting the demands placed on it, during long term operation."

One of the major strengths of the Steyr-based rolling bearing manufacturer is its range of single row cylindrical roller bearings. NKE manufactures over 3000 different variants, which enable an enormous variety of application possibilities. The bearings are suitable for high radial loads and moderate to high speeds. Made from pure rolling bearing steel, they have an exceptional lifespan, while the raceways' high surface quality reduces the operating temperature down and wear. The inner and outer rings of the cylindrical roller bearings can be fitted separately, simplifying installation. Notable for their outstanding economy and operating reliability, they can be produced at the Steyr factory with short lead times.

In addition to cylindrical roller bearings, NKE's standard portfolio of industrial gearbox bearings comprises spherical and taper roller bearings as well as angular contact and deep groove ball bearings. Of particular interest are the company's special bearings for gearboxes, which are developed in close cooperation with the customer and ensure optimum balance of space and performance.

NKE offers gearbox manufacturers a comprehensive service including consulting, assistance with design, calculations and training courses. All bearings made by NKE are subject to stringent quality requirements and are tested using modern inspection and measurement procedures.
