The main measurements of the tapered roller bearings comply with DIN ISO 355 and DIN 720. Dimensional and running tolerances correspond to tolerance category PN acc. to DIN 620. These tolerance classes are standard and are well suited for most applications.

The bearings are separable. This implies the bearing parts can be fitted independently of every different. The bearings are provided without seals. They could be lubricated with grease or oil from the side.

The rollers are processed to create pore-like micro indents in the top of steel (rolling contact surface area and roller brain). This microstructure helps keep an oil film that’s perfect for tapered roller bearing applications. Improved oil film retention considerably inhibits surface damage, obtaining more than eight moments higher strength and equal or higher seizure resistance compared to conventional products.
Much better lubricant oil accumulation and retention (simpler to form oil film) in the roller surface contributes to 10% lower friction by low speeds in comparison to conventional products.
Tapered roller bearings can accept huge radial and axial loads. Axial loads will be absorbed in mere one course. For axial counter support another bearing attached inverse is required. Suitable for medium speeds.

Larger efficiency transmission systems have emerged as key to enhancing gasoline economy, so NSK attempt to develop a huge reliability bearing with the capacity of overcoming these hurdles.

To boost fuel economy, there has been a change to using less lubricant and/or cheaper viscosity lubricant in tranny systems. Therefore, tapered roller bearings in transmissions are being subject to increasingly severe lubrication conditions, increasing the chance of lubrication oil film depletion (lean lubrication circumstances), surface harm, and bearing seizure.
