Steel

It is difficult to imagine a world without steel and iron, so used have we grown to its everyday presence in our lives.

It is difficult to imagine a world without steel and iron, so used have we grown to its everyday presence in our lives.

The global steel consumption has risen significantly in the course of the 20th century, in highly developed, emerging and developing economies likewise. The steel consumption of a country has been a barometer for measuring the dynamics of economic progress. JTEKT is making its contribution to this immense industry by manufacturing a large range of bearings which are being used in the steel manufacturing plants.

Experience and capabilities

Bearings for steel manufacturing plants are bound to operate in very harsh environments including extreme temperatures, contamination and operation under very diverse speeds. Thanks to our ample technological knowledge gained through intensive R&D we are capable of manufacturing a complete line of products for a variety of steel making applications such as roll necks, pinion stand, screw down and drive shafts. Koyo advanced bearings are highly recommended for those environments. Their excellent performance and high reliability considerably prolong the service life and reduce maintenance frequency.

FAQ

What is a spherical roller bearing?

Spherical roller bearings feature a large load rating and self-aligning capability. This type of bearing is suitable for low- or medium speed applications which involve heavy or impact loading. Spherical roller bearings are self-aligning, double-row, combination radial and thrust bearings. They use a spherical or crowned roller as the rolling element. The outer ring contains a spherical race which allows for some misalignment of the shaft and housing. Spherical roller bearings are unequalled in their capacity for high loads and tolerance to shock loads, but have limited speed capabilities. They perform consistently, even under conditions of extreme speed, application-specific stress, and marginal lubrication. The cage of a spherical roller bearing provides high dimensional accuracy and functionality. According to some estimates, spherical roller bearings have twice the running life of conventional bearings.
