|A century of experience – that's what you deal with when it comes to the Timken Company.|
For more than 100 years, Timken has specialized in designing and manufacturing antifriction bearings to make their customers' lives easier — from freight wagon operators and their mules to aircraft pilots and engineers. No, we're not comparing you to a mule; we're just making a point that they've been around for a long time. They're that stubbornly persistent in satisfying others.
Their tapered roller bearings are designed to handle thrust and radial loads on rotating shafts as well as in housings. They consist of the cone (also known as the inner ring), the cup (or outer ring), tapered rollers and the roller retainer (or cage). The tapered design is what enables the bearing to handle thrust and radial loads. Smooth operators indeed.
