Recently we published a paper on the importance of the proper validation of bearings for the Automotive repair/maintenance application, in BearingNews. The main focus in that paper was on the "bearing design" validation. In the latest paper the focus is on the importance of proper "bearing manufacturing" validation.



This year’s HannoverMesse was visited by more than 215,000 visitors including ~40% international attendants joining this industrial fair with ~6500 global exhibitors. Among those exhibitors was JTEKT/Koyo with a booth in hall 22 displaying its latest bearing products and related technologies. As usual Koyo’s booth was well visited by industry experts, branch representatives, the press, students and other interested attendants. Among those visitors were several valued Koyo distributors, including Künemund, Kugellager Premium, Mondial, Ditzinger, Dono, PWO, Ubex, HL Group, Enso and others, that attended our cocktail drink on the Wednesday late afternoon to catch up with each other and exchange in a friendly spirit. During the fair our Partner Kugellager Premium invited us for joint visits to different OE customers. The open discussions were very fruitful and will reinforce our strategy to grow the aftermarket business through our distribution network.

This event again contributed successfully to the expansion and intensification of Koyo’s business activities in the roller bearing markets in “greater” Europe and beyond.



A Roller Bearing is really an extraordinary piece of mechanical engineering. The smallest types have a diameter of no more than a few millimeters and are used in dentist drilling devices with maximum rotation speeds of more than 30.000 rpm, while the largest ones are used in tunnel drilling equipment and measure more than 7 meters in diameter, while rotating at no more than a few rpm's per day.
Linked is an article about one of Koyo's mega bearings for such an application.

Was ist ein Lager?

Ein Lager ist ein bewegliches Element, das für die Drehbewegung zwischen einem festen Teil und einem drehbaren Teil sorgt. Es gibt mehrere Lagertypen wie Gleit-, Magnet- und Wälzlager. Bei Koyo-Lagern handelt es sich um Wälzlager, die eine lange Lebensdauer aufweisen und die einfach austauschbar und energiesparend sind. Die Wälzkörper dieser Lager sind zwischen den Innen- und Außenringen mit oder ohne Lagerkäfig angeordnet. Durch diesen Aufbau ist während des Betriebs eine gleichmäßige Rollbewegung sichergestellt. Die wichtigsten Vorteile von Wälzlagern sind:

  • egeringe Anlaufreibung
  • Fähigkeit zur Handhabung sowohl radialer als auch axialer Belastungen sowie hoher Drehzahlen
  • einfache Handhabung und Wartung
  • austauschbarer und einfacher Erwerb (dank globaler Normalisierung und Standardisierung)
  • Funktionieren unter extremen Bedingungen (bei sehr hohen und sehr niedrigen Temperaturen)
  • einfache Methoden der Fettschmierung

Bei Lagern handelt es sich um wesentliche Bestandteile aller Maschinentypen und Produkte. Sie sind beispielsweise in Autos, Flugzeugen und Haushaltsgeräten, aber auch in Maschinen zur Verarbeitung von Stahl und Halbleitern zu finden.
