Mining & Processing
Longer operating life with greater operational safety in the areas of mining

Bearing Solutions for the toughest challenges

Technical advances are progressing faster and faster in the areas of mining and large conveying systems, development and extraction of crude oil and natural gas, and treatment technology. Our research and development and our intensive exchange of experiences with manufacturers and operators of machines and systems have led to greater operational safety and an ever longer operating life of INA and FAG bearings.

Advanced bearings for various systems and machines

The challenging operating and environmental conditions in the systems and machines require extremely robust bearings. Our customers build and operate ore conveyor systems, mines, cement plants, oil platforms, crushing machines, construction machinery, and construction sites.

Standard designs and special bearings
The conditions in the systems and machines in the area of raw material extraction and processing are different for every application. The concepts, designs, and structures mainly depend on the loads, speeds, operating life, and environmental conditions.

For many applications, the designer is able to use rolling bearings of standard types and designs. However, some applications require special rolling bearings that we have developed for specific requirements in the industry. The largest of these bearings – used in tunnel boring machines – can have an outside diameter greater than four meters.
