Rail transport is a major form of passenger and freight transport all over the world.

Railway vehicles are exposed to tough continuous use for a very long time, often in harsh conditions. It goes without saying that safety, reliability and fault-free operation is required from any component used for such applications. 

Experience and capabilities

Our high precision and high ability bearings fulfill the requirements of this industry. One of the notable applications of Koyo bearings is the Shinkansen train, the famous high-speed bullet train in Japan which we have supplied with bearings for the motor and transmission.

FAQ

What is a bearing?

A bearing is a moving device that supports rotational movement between a stationary part and a rotating part. There are several types of bearings like slide, magnetic and rolling bearings. Koyo bearings are “Rolling Bearings” Rolling bearings have a long service life, high interchangeability and is power saving. The rolling elements of the bearings are assembled between inner and outer rings with or without cage. With this structure, a smooth rolling motion can be realized during operation. The great advantages of rolling bearings are:

  • Low starting friction
  • Ability to support both radial and thrust load and high speed rotation
  • Easy to handle and maintained
  • Interchangeable and easy acquirement (global normalization & standardization)
  • Can operate in extreme environments (high and low temperatures)
  • Simple methods of grease lubrication

Bearings are critical elements in all types of machinery and products. You can find them for example in automobiles, airplanes, home appliances but also in equipment for malting steel and semiconductors.
