Standard designs and special bearings

The conditions in the systems and machines in the area of raw material extraction and processing are different for every application. The concepts, designs, and structures mainly depend on the loads, speeds, operating life, and environmental conditions.

For many applications, the designer can use rolling bearings of standard types and designs. However, some applications require special rolling bearings that we have developed for specific requirements in the industry. The largest of these bearings – used in tunnel boring machines – can have an outside diameter greater than four meters.
