Bearings in the steel mill and primary metal industry operate in extreme conditions—high temperatures, high impact and heavy load amounts must be taken into consideration when selecting the best products for the job.

Angular Contact Bearings

  • Can withstand the demands of high speed applications.
  • Can accept radial and thrust loads.
  • Different contact angles available.

Combination Bearings

  • Outer rings are produced from case hardened material.
  • Combi-bearings accommodate heavy radial and axial loads.
  • Can be offered with or without the mounting plate.

Cylindrical Roller Bearings

  • Wide variety of options are available: Single, double, or multi-row are readily available.
  • Special clearances and grease allow for customized solutions.

Needle Roller Bearings

  • Needle roller bearings offer a higher load carrying capacity and can withstand oscillation with greater rigidity.
  • A wide range of styles are available, including some series made from stainless steel.

Spherical Roller Bearings

  • Can withstand the most arduous environments and operating conditions.
  • Can accept deviations in shaft misalignment.
  • Low to medium speeds are optimal when using spherical roller bearings.

Spiral Bush Bearings

  • Spiral bearings are manufactured from spring strip steel, hardened and ground to precision
  • Heat resistance for Spiral Roller bearings is 350°C.
  • Provides all unique bearing designs for each section of a continuous caster bow segment on consumer applications.

Thrust Bearings

  • Can be offered in single or double direction.
  • Larger more robust sizes can accept heavier axial loads.
  • Will be able to accept shaft misalignment with spherical thrust roller bearings.

Toroidal Roller Bearings

  • Product can accept angular misalignment and axial displacement.
  • Combines the best features of the needle roller design and the spherical roller bearing.
  • Utilizes a specially designed roller to accommodate the harshest environmental conditions.

Water Cooled Bearings

  • Specially customized water cooled housed units for continuous caster applications.
  • Greater roller length allows for increased load carrying capacity.
  • Smaller gap design between split rings allows for trouble free operation by the rollers
  • Hot and cold mill applications (Continuous Caster & Z Mill)
