NKE Austria supplies rolling bearings for railway vehicles. In the railway industry, bearings used in traction motors need to have a long service life. The most commonly used types of bearings for these motors are cylindrical roller bearings, deep-groove ball bearings and electrically insulated roller bearings. Gearbox bearings run at high speeds, are exposed to significant loads, and must endure shocks, vibrations and extreme temperatures. Bearings most commonly used here are cylindrical roller bearings, tapered roller bearings, angular contact ball bearings, four-point contact ball bearings and deep-groove ball bearings. The company also provides commercial and technical support, including application consulting, development and design, calculation, testing and logistic services.
