Thin section bearings

Save space, power and operating costs

Thin section ball bearing with steel cage
Inside wheels, hub bearings carry the weight of the vehicle. At the same time, they enable wheel rotation and, if necessary, torque transmission to the wheel. The thin section tapered roller bearing for wheel drive units (like wheel loaders) and the thin section angular contact ball bearing for crawler drive units (like excavators) offer high power density. Their high stiffness and high shock load capability reduce the downtime of the machine, which leads to higher productivity.

The thin section tapered roller bearing has a space-saving design that enables compact solutions. Depending on the type of machine, both the thin section tapered roller bearing and thin section angular contact ball bearing facilitate cost-saving solutions.
