Axial-Tapered Roller Bearings
Axial tapered roller bearings can support very high axial forces and have high rigidity.
Single direction axial tapered roller bearings
Single direction axial tapered roller bearings can support axial forces in one direction. They comprise a shaft locating washer and a housing locating washer, into which tapered raceways are machined, and a cage with tapered rollers.
The bearings can be dismantled. The bearing washers and the cage with the roller set can be fitted separately.
A typical application for these axial tapered roller bearings is in flush heads for drilling rigs.
Double direction axial tapered roller bearings
Double direction axial tapered roller bearings can support high axial forces in both directions. They have a flat shaft locating washer and two housing locating washers. Tapered raceways are machined into the housing locating washers. A spacer ring between the housing locating washers guides the two cages with tapered rollers and sets the axial internal clearance.
The bearings can be dismantled. The bearing washers and the cages with rollers can be fitted separately.
The bearings are used, for example, in blooming stands and section rolling stands.
Axial tapered roller bearings for screw-down mechanisms
These single direction axial tapered roller bearings are special bearings for screw-down mechanisms on rolling stands. Due to their low friction, these bearings reduce the screw-down forces of the mechanisms.
