Central gear solutions
Optimized performance in harsh environments
Meet your load, design and housing requirementsThe SKF central gear solutions includes the following options:
- Tapered roller bearings (CL7C) and pinion seals
- Hybrid pinion unit: combination of tapered roller and angular contact ball bearing with pinion seal
SKF tapered roller bearings produced to the CL7C specifications simplify preload adjustment and offer extreme preload capability with minimal preload loss. Tapered roller bearings also deliver high stiffness, low noise and reduced vibration levels, even at higher speeds and with heavier loads. Hybrid pinion units enable correct and stable pinion shaft positioning, with no setting effect and lower power loss.
Both approaches help simplify the assembly process and cut costs for OEMs. For end-users, the SKF central gear solution offers long service life and reliability, with no oil leakage and less noise.
