Continuous caster bearing has component design for easy handling

Continuous caster bearing has component design for easy handling

Timken has introduced a line of easy-to-install, high-capacity bearings for demanding continuous caster applications in the metal industry. The Adapt bearing is used in the float position in strand roll support segments. Each bearing consists of a cylindrical inner ring, an outer ring with a proprietary outer race profile and a roller/retainer assembly that features specially profiled rollers with a snap-in retainer. This component design simplifies inspection and removal, while also allowing operators to independently change parts as needed during maintenance, saving time and costs.

Service agreements allow

successful drive rebuilds

If an SEW-Eurodrive needs rebuilding, that is no time to compromise on its original quality, the company advises. Its factory technicians follow strict guidelines developed through years of successful rebuilds. If the existing stator isn’t up to standard, it’s never rewound, but replaced. Wear items such as bearings are automatically replaced with the originally specified replacement parts, not ‘will-fits’ that may compromise the performance of the drive.

Threadlocker tape makes no mess

To apply, it is simply peeled from the spool and wrapped around the fastener’s threads, with the size of the fastener determining the number of wraps required, and it is removable with hand tools. It fixtures in 30 mins., and full cure is achieved in 24 hours. Operating temperature range is minus 65°F to plus 300°F.
