Belsnabpodshipnik and Koyo at Belagro, Belarus 5-10 June 2018

 

Belagro is an international exhibition focused on the agriculture industry for machinery, equipment and technologies for production, processing, transportation and storage of agricultural products and solutions. The exhibition took place on the 5th until the 10th of June in Minsk, Belarus.

Koyo Distributor Belsnabpodshipnik participated to this fair and offered Koyo the opportunity to join forces in order to promote the Koyo bearings range and show our technologies and capabilities within this area.

The booth was very well visited by representatives who are active in the agricultural industry from CIS - and central Asian countries. We also had the chance to meet with members of the Belarussian ministry of Agriculture. They showed a lot of interest in Koyo bearings and Toyoda Machineworks also a brand of JTEKT Corporation.

Last but not least JTEKT/Koyo was honored to receive a certificate of appreciation from Belsnabpodshipnik for the great business relationship between both companies. We would like to thank Belsnabpodshipnik for their support and trust in our company and products.

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.
