Schaeffler has the largest in its history so far Spherical plain bearings manufactured. The special bearing has an outside diameter of 1900 mm, a bore diameter of 1500 mm and a height of 600 mm. The weight is just under 4,7 t. The bearing is used in a cutting head excavator designed and built by Royal IHC.

Among the tailor made novelties of SKF for Machine Tools include the Silent series bearings, which are quiet and cool due to the improved design of their cages. Their seals block contaminants so effectively that machine availability benefits.

High rigidity, high payloads and extremely precise concentricity: these features unite the RTB stock from Rodriguez, which have been specially designed for use in turning, positioning and indexing tables as well as for supporting milling or drilling spindle heads.
In order to be able to assemble and deliver the right slide bearing solution to the user at any time, it holds true Igus about 12.000 different "iglidur"Bearings of tribo-polymers in stock. In addition to large series starting with 500 pieces, the plastics specialist also offers small series up to 500 pieces or prototypes with the production service "Speedigus" with the divisions "Speedimold", "Speedicut", "Speedifit" and the 3D printing service. What the different methods can do is explained in the video:

Spindle ball bearing of GMN There are now also in the high-precision accuracy classes P4 + and UP +. The new class P4 + gradually replaces the previous accuracy classes DIN P4 and ABEC 7. The new premium accuracy class "Ultra Precision" UP + meets even higher demands on running, shape and dimensional accuracy.
Before 100 years, SKF engineer Arvid Palmgren invented that Spherical roller bearings, Since then, this has become a worldwide success in various industries. An end to this success story is also after the 100. Birthday not foreseeable.
