Rolling bearings for Shipbuilding & Port Technology applications

Shipbuilding & Port Technology

In the application field of shipbuilding roller bearings are mainly used in the areas of propulsion and steering technology. The special features in here are relatively large-dimensioned machine components which must withstand extraordinary charges by constant exposure to moisture or water from the surrounding area. Further applications are winding systems of the anchor or the cordage. In the field of port facility roller bearings are mainly used in handling and lifting equipment. Among others they support a precision movement of cranes, even under extreme conditions. As well as on ships roller bearings in the port technology have to resist high loads and must have a special weather resistance to corrosion.

All our bearings are also available in current insulation.
