RENK thrust bearings ‒ D type

RENK thrust bearings in the D range are suitable for absorbing high axial and radial forces, include shock type forces, regardless of the rotation and load direction. The key feature of the bearings in the D range are the RENK RS / RD slide shoes with a round running surface, which have a proven track record in many bearings in other ranges as well.

The bearings of the D type can be operated with natural cooling, water cooling, or external lubrication. The housings are designed as pedestal bearings, as saddle bearings with a lubricant sump, or as saddle bearings without a lubricant sump.

A bearing housing made of gray cast iron is used in the standard version. When it comes to special applications, we offer decades of experience in developing customer-specific solutions with bearing housings in welded designs.

Rolling mill bearing – WG type

RENK rolling mill bearings in the WG range are designed for extreme axial strain. They were developed primarily for the mounting of rolling mill drive units and large electrical machines in which high axial loads occur at low speeds and a high level of protection against damage must be ensured at extreme loads.
