23-25 May 2018 European Distributor Convention in Seville, Spain

‘ A unique combination of business and knowledge sharing’

Seville – Resting on its historical laurels with a warm and sunny glow, Seville is a dazzling city with a lively mix of Renaissance, Gothic, Mudéjar and Modern architecture.

Seville was the venue of our 7th edition of the European Distributor Convention. More than 70 participants from 21 countries attended to this special event.

It was a pleasure to welcome our valued Partners and colleagues at Barceló Sevilla Renacimiento and combine business with the great Spanish culture. The business meeting was a great opportunity for us and our partners to exchange ideas, knowledge and information about our future direction.

Our three days schedule not only included a business meeting but also a very special cultural program from where we could visit Seville and have a great Toro Experience in Huelva. The event was a great chance to show our customers how important they are for us and of course stay up to date about developments at the European bearing market. We would like to all of our business Partners for participating and your very important input during this event.

Also a special thank you goes out to our Spanish distributor Mr. Jose Manuel Castillo Rodamientos Componentes y Kits and Mr. Jose Blanca from Nautalia Viajes

FAQ

What is an angular contact ball bearing?

An angular contact ball bearing uses axially asymmetric races. An axial load passes in a straight line through the bearing, whereas a radial load takes an oblique path that tends to want to separate the races axially. So the angle of contact on the inner race is the same as that on the outer race. Angular contact bearings better support "combined loads" (loading in both the radial and axial directions) and the contact angle of the bearing should be matched to the relative proportions of each. The larger the contact angle (typically in the range 10 to 45 degrees), the higher the axial load supported, but the lower the radial load. In high speed applications, such as turbines, jet engines, and dentistry equipment, the centrifugal forces generated by the balls changes the contact angle at the inner and outer race. Ceramics such as silicon nitride are now regularly used in such applications due to their low density (40% of steel). These materials significantly reduce centrifugal force and function well in high temperature environments. They also tend to wear in a similar way to bearing steel—rather than cracking or shattering like glass or porcelain.

Most bicycles use angular-contact bearings in the headsets because the forces on these bearings are in both the radial and axial direction.
