An Overview of Koyo Bearings Company

Friday, November 4th, 2016

In order to maximize your knowledge of bearings, I decided to spend a little time presenting some good information about some of the significant businesses in the market. The second in this series is Koyo Bearings. Koyo is the JTEKT Corporation brand for Bearings. (more…)

Wheel Bearing DAC3055W

Friday, March 15th, 2013

I recently saw an online question from someone looking for a cross reference to wheel bearing DAC3055W.  The hope was to find an compatible version from BCA or Timken.

We did a little research on this.  It turns out that the DAC3055W is made by Koyo.

This is a special Automotive Clutch Bearing.  It’s considered a special because the width is wider than the standard width.  The dimensions are 35x55x32.

Not only is this product made only by Koyo, but they make it only for OEM (original equipment manufacturer) and they don’t sell it to the aftermarket.  It’s only for the manufacturers.

KTV (Koyo Training Vehicle) Panaramic view

Very impressive vehicle. While it was a wonderful day with all the activity, it felt good when it was over. The turnout was wondferful. Thank you to all that stopped by, and thank you to the Koyo representative and driver!

Until next time!!!

An impressive show of technology on wheels is parked in our parking lot today. KTV Truck (Koyo Training Vehicle) on the inside is as impressive as it is on the outside.  The gentleman enjoying the coffee is Mr Cox, VP of Bearings Incorporated, and movtivator to bring the truck to our facilities at Bearings Incorporated.

Koyo Needle Roller – Bearing types and cages

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

Needle Roller Bearings

Needle roller bearings are an economical alternative for applications requiring minimal space to carry a given load at a desired speed. Needle roller bearings can be an ideal choice because of their ability to handle a given level of speed and load capacity, yet have the smallest cross section of all roller bearing types.

We offer both inch and metric nominal bearings in popular designs such as: drawn cups, radial caged needle rollers, machined ring, track rollers, thrust bearings, combined bearings, and drawn cup roller clutches. Most of these bearing types can be operated directly on a machined shaft of suitable quality, or with a matching inner ring where this requirement cannot be conventionally satisfied.

Radial Needle Roller and Cage Assemblies

Radial needle roller and cage assemblies have a steel cage that provides both inward and outward retention for the needle rollers. The designs provide maximum cage strength consistent with the inherently high load ratings of needle roller bearings. Accurate guidance of the needle rollers by the cage bars allows for operation at high speeds. Also available are needle roller and cage assemblies using molded, one-piece glass-reinforced engineered polymer cages. Needle roller and cage assemblies are manufactured with either one or two rows of needle rollers.

Drawn Cup Bearings

The outer ring in the form of a cup is accurately drawn and no subsequent machining is performed to build the outer raceway. Drawn cup needle roller bearings are available in open ends or single, closed-end designs, They also are available with one or two integral seals. Other options include a single lubricating hole and matching inner ring.

Heavy-Duty (Machined) Needle Roller Bearings

These bearings are available in a wide range of inch and metric sizes plus an array of design features including: integral seals, side flanges (or separate end washers), inner rings, oil holes and single or double caged sets (or full complement) of rollers.

Track Rollers

Track rollers listed in this catalog are designed with outer rings of large radial cross section to withstand heavy rolling and shock loads on track-type or cam-controlled equipment. The outside diameters of the outer rings are either profiled or cylindrical, Profiled track rollers are designed to alleviate uneven bearing loading resulting from deflection, bending or misalignment in mounting. Stud-type track rollers are available with or without lip contact seals, or with shields. Yoke-type track rollers are designed for straddle mounting. Each yoke-type is available with either radial needle roller and cage assemblies, or with a single (or double) full complement row of cylindrical or needle rollers.

Thrust Bearings

Thrust needle roller and cage assemblies are available in a variety of inch or metric sizes. All types have very small cross sections. If the back up surfaces cannot be used as raceways, hardened washers are available. Thrust bearings are available with needle rollers or heavier cylindrical rollers for high load-carrying capacity.

Combined (Radial and Thrust) Bearings

Combined bearings consist of a radial bearing (needle roller bearing) and a thrust bearing (ball or roller bearing). Some combined bearings are constructed similar to drawn cups, but with an added thrust bearing component. Like other needle roller bearings, these combined bearings can be matched with an optional inner ring or thrust washer as the opposing raceway.

Koyo BMT 39 - Bearing Mounting Tools

 

Practical Mechanical mounting set for safe, precise and quick mounting of bearings, bushings, sealing rings, cam wheels and pulleys.  The set consists of a dead-blow hammer, 3 aluminum sleeves and a set of 39 plastic collets (rings).

The impact resistant plastic collets support the inner and outer rings when mounting, preventing metal to metal contact and possible damage to the bearing rings and shaft.
