NSK Develops Highly Reliable Anti-creep Design Tapered Roller Bearing for Mining Dump Trucks

NSK Ltd. (NSK; Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and CEO: Norio Otsuka) today announced that it has developed a highly reliable anti-creep design roller bearing for preventing the axle wear due to inner ring creep*1 that occurs in tapered roller bearings used in the wheels of dump trucks for mining operations. With the development of this product, NSK will contribute to improved maintainability and higher reliability. NSK is targeting one billion yen in sales for this product in 2016.

*1: Inner ring creep: Slip phenomenon that occurs between the inner ring and the axle. Creep can lead to wear between the axle and the bearing bore.

1. Development background
With the continuing global trend toward urbanization, global demand for natural resources continues to expand, especially among the BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India and China) and in developing countries. In recent years, this had led to mining operations running 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, which in turn requires equipment that is highly reliable under such extreme conditions. Normal tapered roller bearings are commonly used in the wheels of mining dump trucks, but inner ring creep can easily occur, resulting in axle wear. Repair of the axle wear, in turn, requires frequent maintenance time and extra expense.

As a conventional countermeasure for this, dedicated anti-creep mechanisms have sometimes been used. However, thanks to its advanced analysis technology, testing and state-of-the-art production technology, NSK has produced a solution that involves only a specification change to the bearing itself. The result of this approach is eight times the anti-creep performance of conventional products, reduced axle wear and improved maintainability. Furthermore, NSK employs a special heat treatment process to realize increased resistance to surface fatigue on both the inner and outer ring, resulting in equivalent and greater life compared to conventional products.

2. New product features
(1) Optimal anti-creep design
Through analysis of the tapered roller bearings often used on mining dump trucks, NSK realized that local deformation was occurring in the inner ring when the rolling element passes under a high level of load, which was resulting in inner ring creep. As a result, NSK increased the thickness of the inner ring and increased the number of rollers to reduce the load on the rolling element, thereby reducing local deformation in the inner ring and significantly limiting creep.
(2) NSK long-life technology
NSK applies a special heat treatment process for increased toughness against surface fatigue on both the inner and outer ring, resulting in equivalent and greater life compared to conventional products.3. New product benefits
This product achieves improved maintainability and higher reliability for mining dump truck wheels, which in turn results in better productivity.

This article, press release or announcement is translated from BearingNEWS (www.bearing-news.com) publications and adapted for the Chinese bearing industry professionals. << Replacing Roller Bearings with GGB Plain Bearings >> 当今GGB轴承技术提供的先进滑动轴承与滚动轴承相比具备很多优势。当今GGB轴承技术提供的先进滑动轴承与滚动轴承相比具备很多优势。 除了它们的简单设计和成本效益,滑动轴承提供更大的负载能力,更大空间,重量更轻,更紧凑的设计节省重量。此外他们补偿偏差,减少边缘载荷和抑制噪声和振动。因为它们不包含运动部件,轴承也提供更安静的工作环境,更可靠的性能,并且只需要很少维护。 这些优势是由设计工程师在广泛应用滑动轴承替换滚动轴承来实现的。这些应用包括风力涡轮机,农业设备,转向系统,空调压缩机,发动机摇臂,节流阀,变速箱和传动系统,和头目,其中。潜在应用包括海上浮式生产储油系统,制动机构,发电机和起动机。 滑动轴承也不是适合所有应用。尤其是在需要超低摩擦和/或高精度轴位置。但是在涉及高载缓慢的振荡运动中滑动轴承就显示出了优异性,因为滚动轴承的滚动部件脱落可能会导致过早失效。 用GGB轴承取代传统的滚动轴承可以给用户提供技术和竞争优势。更大的接触面积提供高承载能力和抗疲劳破坏,冲击和边缘载荷。轴承的摩擦特性也抵抗惯性和高速滑行,滚子轴承的主体,他们容忍偏差优于许多滚动元件设计。 紧凑的整体结构和较小的外壳,节省空间和重量。简单的压入配合几乎消除了安装的潜在损害。转换为滑动轴承还可以降低部分成本,低风险装配。 完整替换滚动轴承与普通轴承的文章,请点击 http://machinedesign.com/article/plain-bearings-outperform-rolling-element-bearings-0407 更多信息请联系 china@ggbearings.com
