Raw Material Extraction and Processing

KRW large bearings are used worldwide in almost all areas of raw material extraction, preparation and processing. The extreme operating conditions in these areas demand maximum wear resistance and longevity from the bearings. In process plants where downtimes and repairs far exceed the costs of storage, it is immensely important for the plant operator to be able to rely on the functionality and availability of bearings. Whether in coal production, ore crushing and processing or cement industry, KRW bearings have stood for reliability in these industries for decades.

Machine Tools and Processing Machines

In no other product are the requirements on the accuracy of the bearings used consistently as high as in a machine tool. Whether spindle, rotary axis or rotary table, the bearing arrangement defines the limits of the machine tool like no other machine element. KRW bearings stand for highest precision. KRW is an innovator and partner to the world's best machine tool manufacturers to improve their products further.

Rolling Mills

The worldwide demand for steel and non-ferrous metals is constantly increasing. Sheets, profiles, wires or tubes made of these materials are used as semi-finished products in cars, cranes, buildings and even electrical engineering. Forming between two or more rotating rolls within a roll stand is a continuous process that is used in the automotive industry from the hot forming of coarse slabs to the calibration of finished outer skin panels.
