Why TKW Spherical roller thrust bearings?
Improved, ultra-clean steel provides longer bearing service life, even under heavier loads.
• Heat treatment
A unique TKW heat treatment process significantly improves wear-resistance and fracture toughness.
Refined precision manufacturing processes allow the production of bearings that run smoother and maximize the effects of the lubricant between the contacting surfaces.
• Internal geometry
A fine-tuned micro-geometry of the rolling contacts provides better load distribution and reduced friction.
The standard range of TKW spherical roller thrust bearings starts from a 60 mm bore diameter and goes up to a 1 600 mm bore. Larger sizes can be supplied on request.
Three bearing series for a wide range of applications
The standard bearings cover an extensive dimension range in the three ISO Dimension
Series 292, 293 and 294. They satisfy the important selection criteria
• load carrying capacity
• rotational speed
• space in the application.
When very high load carrying capacity is required, bearings in the 293 and 294 series are suitable. The small cross section of the 292 series bearings have favourable speed, space and weight characteristics.
Smaller and more cost-effective equipment can be designed for longer bearing service life or higher output as a result of the high combined load carrying capacity of TKW spherical roller thrust bearings. These bearings can operate at high speeds even under heavy load conditions.
Spherical roller thrust bearings are extremely well suited for heavy-duty applications, with axial loads or combined axial and radial loads. They are self-aligning and can accommodate low as well as high speeds. Due to their design, various degrees of stiffness can be arranged. Versatility is a characteristic of spherical roller thrust bearings as they can contribute to space saving and cost-effective designs. The following pages provide more detailed explanations about this bearing type and how it can be used.
Smooth running and long bearing service life are a result of the internal design that gives the raceways and rollers an optimized balance between contact pressure and friction. TKW spherical roller thrust bearings are well proven in the field and are subject to continuous development to provide improved performance. TKW performance class bearings are a good example of what can be achieved with purposeful development – in this case, opening up new application horizons.
