Tapered roller bearings

Tapered roller bearings are mainly used to bear radial and axial combined loads, mainly radial load; while tapered roller thrust bearings with large taper angle can be used to bear radial and axial combined loads, mainly axial loads. Tapered roller bearing is is of separate type, and its inner ring (including tapered roller and cage) and outer ring can be installed separately. In the process of installation and use, the radial and axial clearance of the bearing can be adjusted, or pre-interference installation can be done. Bearings with this type include single row tapered roller bearings, double row tapered roller bearings and four row tapered roller bearings, used for a variety of industrial applications.


Main structural forms

1.Single row tapered roller bearing

Single row tapered roller bearing can limit the axial displacement of the shaft or shell in one direction and bear the axial load in one direction. Additional axial force is generated under the action of radial load. Therefore, in the two supports of the shaft, the end faces of bearing outer ring and bearing inner ring are oppositely mounted. If used alone, the applied axial force must be greater than the additional axial force. The 313 series tapered roller bearings have large contact angles (27°~ 30°) and can withstand large axial loads. The contact angle of tapered roller bearings in other series is between 10°and 18°.

2. Double row tapered roller bearing

Double row tapered roller bearing has a pair of raceway outer ring and two inner rings, and a middle spacer between the two inner rings. The thickness of the spacer can be adjusted to adjust the bearing clearance. Double row tapered roller bearing can bear the bidirectional axial load while bearing the radial load. It can limit the bidirectional axial displacement of the shaft or shell within the axial clearance range of the bearing.

3. Four row tapered roller bearings

Four row tapered roller bearings adopt two double raceway inner rings, one double raceway outer ring and two single raceway outer rings, and there are spacers between inner ring and outer ring for adjusting clearance. It has similar performance with double row bearing: large radial load and low limit speed. Four row tapered roller bearings are mainly used for heavy machinery, such as rolling mill.


Machine tool is the carrier of advanced manufacturing technology and the basic production means of equipment industry. It is the basic equipment for equipment manufacturing industry, mainly for automobile, military, agricultural machinery, engineering machinery, electric power equipment, railway locomotive, ship and other industries. Machine tool performance plays an increasingly important role in production efficiency and product quality and also has high demand for more reliable and energy efficient components.



Driven by increasing environmental awareness and stricter emission regulations, the automotive industry is undergoing an unprecedented period of change. Computer technology has been used in the control and monitoring devices of many vehicle systems. New materials for cars, such as light alloys, have been gradually used in mainstream cars, and new technologies allow for further emissions cuts.



Railway transportation is one of the main ways of transportation. As the main means of railway transportation, train technology is constantly innovating. Freight vehicles with increasing load, locomotive vehicles with increasing traction, or passenger vehicles with increasing running speed are affecting people's way of life.



Each motorcycle is usually equipped with 20 to 30 bearings. These bearings are used for important rotating parts such as engines, transmissions, and wheels to support driving, and are responsible for reducing friction and driving the engine power to the wheels. Therefore, the performance required for motorcycle bearings is to achieve smooth rotation through low friction, low vibration and high durability. These performance affect the fuel consumption and safety that are closely related to our life. ZYS always pays attention to these details and strives to develop bearing and optimize the bearing design to improve the quality of life and protect the global environment.



Agricultural engineering involves a wide range of machinery, equipment and tools, most of which are specially designed and manufactured according to the characteristics of agriculture and the special requirements of various operations, such as soil tillage machinery, planting and fertilization machinery, plant protection machinery, crop harvesting machinery, animal husbandry machinery and agricultural products processing machinery, etc. Another part of agricultural machinery is common to other industries, and can be directly selected according to the characteristics and needs of agriculture, such as agricultural power machinery, water pumps in farmland irrigation and drainage machinery, etc.; or design these machinery into agricultural variants according to the characteristics and needs of agriculture, such as agricultural vehicles, trailers in agricultural transport machinery, stone machinery in farmland construction machinery.



There are many kinds of metallurgical equipment, including not only the equipment needed by the raw material factory, but also the equipment needed from the upstream process to the downstream process, such as steelmaking process, steel rolling process and leveling process. These bearings are used under the special conditions of iron powder, water and heat of metallurgical equipment, so they need to meet the requirements of heavy load , vibration shock, from ultra-low speed to high-speed & rapid acceleration and deceleration. "Stable operation and improved production efficiency" can be described as a representative industry in the field of metallurgical equipment. ZYS is not only in bearing design technology, but also in various aspects such as bearing material technology, lubrication technology, and analytical technology.



Oil and gas technology is developing at a very rapid pace, and exploiting deeper oil and gas resources in harsher environments means that the top drives need more power to withstand higherloads.When unforeseen downtime costs are as high as $1 million per day, the reliability of equipment becomes particularly important, and the reliability of key parts of the bearing directly determines the performance of the equipment.



As a renewable and clean energy source, wind power is rapidly developing all over the world. Large wind turbines are giant machinery. Nowadays, many 2MW wind power plants under construction have wind turbine blades with a length of about 40 meters, a rotating shaft with a height of 60 to 100 meters and total weight of more than 200 tons. Therefore, the bearings used in wind power must also be large, with an inner diameter ranging from 100 mm to 700 mm. Some models require bearings with an inner diameter of nearly 2 meters. Bearings for wind turbines require high reliability, because the bearings are designed to keep the windmill running for 20 years; and when the fault occurs, the parts are not easy to replace (the bearing is used at a long distance from the ground). Bearing manufacturers need to have a high degree of computer analysis technology and exquisite skills in materials and heat treatment, and need to master the test evaluation technology for large bearing .
