With the Challenges ….

Posted by Sally Voelske on May 19, 2011

…. Of a new millennium, striking a balance among innovation, quality, performance and economics could be a formidable task for some bearing suppliers.  But not for The Timken Company.

For the past century, Timken has worked to blend these essential elements to create enduring value for their customers.  This focus, and the synergy between Timken’s steelmaking and bearing manufacturing organizations, adds up to a degree of product knowledge that is unsurpassed in the world.

Today, the measure of Timken’s success can be stated quite simply; Timken is the world’s largest manufacturer of tapered roller bearings.  They have led the bearing industry in nearly every significant technological advancement, manufacturing evolution, and material enhancement since Henry Timken first patented the tapered roller bearing in 1898.

Of course, maintaining this leadership position requires a full measure of dedication.  Stemming from the core of the Timken organization is a passion for quality in all that they do and a steadfast commitment to offer a spectrum of bearings and related services that add value to your own end product.

You will find this particularly true when it comes to our line of metric tapered roller bearings.

The Timken IsoClass brand was developed to encompass and expand Timken’s range of metric bearings – and provide you with outstanding value now and in the future.  The result is an extensive line of ISO bearings with more than 170 part numbers in the 30000 series readily available.

A closer look will show that Timken IsoClass bearings represent a commitment that reaches far beyond adopting a new brand.

For example, since 1996, Timken has invested more than $60 million in new plants and people to support the IsoClass product line.  They have added 30 part numbers to allow them to provide a full line of products to meet this important market’s needs.

In research and development, Timken has invested more than 50,000 hours to evaluate and develop  new and existing designs and 500,000 hours in performance testing.  They have expanded their metric manufacturing capacity with facilities in Italy and Poland joining our other plants in Brazil, Canada, China, France, Great Britain, Romania, and the United States.
