Bearings in Mining Equipment

Friday, October 13th, 2017

A recent article in one of the more well-known mining magazines mentioned that the global mining market continues to grow and, in fact, it is blooming. This article stated that both underground and above ground mining equipment is expected to be sold for more than $30 billion by 2022.

What was very interesting however, about this article, was the fact that mining companies are continually eliminating outdated mining machines and replacing them with more modern up-to-date machinery. Even if they decide to keep the older machinery, most mining companies realize the benefits of using newer, more efficient solutions for the overhauling and replacing of parts.

Here’s a new video from SKF featuring their SKF Explorer spherical roller bearings. These bearings are designed to take heavy radial and axial loads, and are capable of accommodating misalignment.


What Are Thrust Bearings Used For?

Friday, January 15th, 2016

Thrust bearings are a type of rolling-element bearing. Although they permit rotation between parts similar to other bearings, thrust bearings are primarily designed to support an axial load.

A thrust bearing helps reduce friction and deal with stress while enabling rotational or linear movement between various parts in automobiles and other machinery.


NTN Spherical Roller Bearings for Aggregate Equipment

Friday, August 8th, 2014

In the Aggregate Industry, it’s only fitting that bearings can comply with the rigorous requirements. There are potential mishaps every step of the process, from heavy loading and high-misalignment to extreme contamination.

The demands of high loading, severe misalignment, and extreme contamination applications are always present. Some failures are even imminent at some point. That said, the design and production of bearings should meet those specific needs.

Whether your requirements are for the mining industry, construction, agriculture or almost any other industry, there are bearings that could actually deliver.

NTN is one of the most trusted brand names in the market. With years of experience, their extensive and in-depth knowledge of bearing applications have yielded an incessant growth of their product portfolio.

More to products built for the aggregate industry, NTN also has one of the widest arrays of super precision and precision grade ball and roller bearings available, along with other top-of-the-line mounted bearing units and a full line of constant velocity joints for half-shafts and propeller shafts.




Spherical Roller Bearings

Friday, May 16th, 2014

A spherical roller bearing refers to a rolling-element bearing that allows rotation with low friction and allows angular misalignment. More often than not, such bearings support a rotating shaft in the [bore] of the inner ring that could be misaligned relative to the outer ring. The misalignment is possible because of the spherical internal shape of the outer ring.

Spherical roller bearings contain two rows of rollers, a common sphered outer ring raceway and two inner ring raceways inclined at an angle to the bearing axis. The center point of the sphere in the outer ring raceway is situated at the bearing axis. Spherical roller bearings are built to handle heavy radial loads and heavy axial loads in both directions.
