Bearing manufacturer NKE AUSTRIA GmbH introduces bearing solutions for industrial gearboxes at this year’s Motion, Drive and Automation in Hannover.
In addition to cylindrical roller bearings, the typical gearbox bearings include spherical roller and tapered roller bearings as well as angular contact and deep groove ball bearings. Special bearings manufactured according to customer specifications can also be supplied. NKE’s gearbox bearings are used, for example, in general mechanical engineering, in mining and conveying systems, in heavy machinery, in the iron and steel industry and in wind turbines.
The rolling bearings in industrial gearboxes must withstand arduous duty. NKE supplies a wide range of bearing solutions for various operating conditions and requirements in industrial applications. A speciality of the Austrian bearing manufacturer are single-row cylindrical roller bearings, whose application possibilities are almost unlimited. NKE produces cylindrical roller bearings in more than 3,000 different designs and versions, suitable for high radial loads and moderate to high speeds. Made from the purest rolling bearing steel, the bearings have an exceptional lifespan, while the raceways’ high surface quality keeps the operating temperature down and reduces wear. The inner and outer rings of these cylindrical roller bearings can be fitted separately, which simplifies installation. Efficient and reliable in operation, the bearings can be produced at short lead times in NKE’s Steyr factory.
In addition to cylindrical roller bearings, NKE’s standard portfolio of industrial gearbox bearings comprises spherical and tapered roller bearings as well as angular contact and deep groove ball bearings. Special bearings for gearboxes are developed and manufactured in close cooperation with their users. NKE provides a comprehensive technical service for gearbox manufacturers, which covers consulting, design support and analysis, and training. All NKE bearings are subjected to stringent quality procedures and are tested using state-of-the-art procedures and equipment.
