Transmission and gear systems are crucial in a lot of mechanical devices.

The most common use is in automobile vehicles but they are also being used in a lot of agricultural, industrial and construction equipment and wind turbines. Transmissions and gears have several important functions but their main job is to provide speed and torque conversions in motorized equipment.

Experience and capabilities

Koyo bearings are being used in various types of transmission and gear systems. Our bearings support the rotation and maintain the alignment of components in these systems. The choice of bearing suitable for the application depends on the operating conditions such as, load, rotational speed and lubrication.

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.
