Ceramic outperforms steel – Clever material combinations for robust bearing solutions
Bearings often operate under challenging applicational conditions. Contamination and electrical erosion can cause bearings to fail quickly — if they aren’t engineered accordingly.
A new era for gearbox bearings – How innovative rolling bearings are enabling changes in the wind industry
The wind industry is in a fierce race to reduce the levelized cost of energy to become competitive with other energy sources. New developments in rolling bearing technology allow to reduce the drivetrain weight which significantly reduces the costs and even increases the power. This allows to increase the onshore turbine sizes within the limitations for transport.
