Massive Boring Machines Rely on Timken When Making Way for the World's Longest, Deepest Rail Tunnel

On Oct. 15, 2010, Switzerland’s Gotthard base tunnel became a reality. At 2:17 p.m. Geneva Time that day, a boring machine in the east tunnel located 6 km (3.7 mi) south of Sedrun broke through the last meter of rock deep inside the Alpine range. The colossal 57-km (35.4-mi) Gotthard railway tunnel is the world's longest, most deeply set passage of its kind. It took 15 years, 3,000 workers, €9.1 billion (US$12.7 billion) -- and thousands of bearings made by The Timken Company -- to complete.

CSX Formed Thin-Section Bearings – A New Product Family

With its CSX formed thin-section bearings, Schaeffler Group Industrial is introducing a new bearing type with very special characteristics: No longer manufactured using conventional methods, the bearing rings are formed from drawn and profiled stainless steel. The bearings therefore offer good corrosion protection and are resistant to a wide variety of media.

Axial Angular Contact Roller Bearings with Integrated Electromechanical Brake

Schaeffler Group Industrial has developed a new, particularly compact and lightweight bearing support featuring an electromechanical brake. The new ZAXB bearing unit is particularly suitable for the reliable fixing and smooth positioning of ceiling mounts in operating rooms. The incorporated AXS angular contact roller bearing can support high axial loads and tilting moments. This ensures that the numerous medical devices as well as computers and screens can be reliably brought to their optimal ergonomic positions. The electromechanical brake enables their secure location. Compared to conventional systems with separately attached brake, the unit is much lighter and more compact. At the same time, it is a closed system, which means that there is less exposure to aggressive disinfectants which could damage the materials used.

E1 Radial Spherical Roller Bearings in X-life Quality

The FAG E1 spherical roller bearing is the classic bearing variant for the rotor main shaft in wind turbines. This rolling bearing design in X-life quality combines a high load carrying capacity and an angular adjustment facility. Schaeffler Group Industrial also now offers bearings with a steel cage instead of the conventional solid brass cage for the typical sizes used in medium-size wind turbines with outputs from 1.4 to 2.1 megawatts. These are bearings with a bore of 600 mm (outside diameter 870 mm) and 630 mm (outside diameter 920 mm).

Needle roller bearings for the Shinkansen

With a range of components for the braking system of the new Shinkansen E5, the Rail Sector Management of Schaeffler Group Industrial has succeeded for the first time in being represented in the Japanese high speed train. The new series of the Shinkansen will starti running between Tokyo und Shin Aomori from December 2010. The increase in travel speed along this line from 275 km/h to 320 km/h required a new high performance braking system, which was developed by Knorr-Bremse. The axle-mounted brake calipers in the system are fitted with needle roller bearings and drawn cup needle roller bearings, inner rings, axial bearing washers, bearing washers and axial needle roller and cage assemblies from INA.

Plain bearings with ELGOGLIDE. Freedom from Maintenance and High Load Capacity

Rolling bearings offer only limited suitability for swivel motion when subjected to simultaneous high loads. Especially when small swivel angles in combination with shock loads and vibration form part of the operating conditions, this can lead to ripples in the raceways (false brinelling). In addition to uneven running and increased noise development, this often results in premature bearing failure.
