Six times the strength of conventional cage designs

Six times the strength of conventional cage designs NSK has developed tapered roller bearings and cylindrical roller bearings incorporating new pin-type cages that have up to six times the strength of conventional cages against the effects of shock loads. The bearings are made of a new bearing material called SAC steel, which can offer long bearing life in harsh environments such as steel and aluminium mills, where bearings are exposed to wear particles from the gear teeth of large gearboxes. NSK says it the development will help to address the problems of maintenance on large gearboxes in rolling mills. The sheer difficulty of removing and maintaining such large gearboxes places the onus on components such as bearings to provide ever increasing lifespans and reliability levels.
