Mining and processing

Product range

A variety of conditions have to be dealt with in the various machines used in the Mining and Processing sector.

Bearing dimensions and designs are mainly determined by the following criteria:

  • Load
  • Speed
  • Service life
  • Environmental factors
  • Easy maintenance

For many applications, designers can use rolling bearings and plain bearings of the standardized types and designs. Other applications, however, require special rolling and plain bearings we have developed for special requirements in this industry. The largest of these bearings, which are used in tunneling machines, can have outside diameters up to 4.25 meters.
