SKF produces tapered roller bearings of different types and sizes to suit a wide variety of applications. SKF bearings can be summarized as follows:

– Tapered roller bearings in a row
– Tapered roller bearings in a row, matched
– Tapered roller bearings in two rows
– Tapered roller bearings to four rows

These bearings are described in four separate chapters.

SKF also manufactures packages bearing protected, and pre-lubricated, based on tapered roller bearings

– Combinations-wheel bearings for cars
– Combinations-wheel bearings for trucks
– Cartridges tapered roller bearings for rail vehicles.

Characteristics of design

The tapered roller bearings present on the inner and outer rings of tapered roller between which are willing tapered roller. If the conical surfaces were extended, they converge towards a single point on the axis of rotation. Their design makes them particularly suited to the combined loads (radial and axial). The axial load capacity bearings is determined to a large extent by the contact angle α; more α, the greater the axial load capacity is important. The calculation factor e indicates an order of magnitude for this angle: the more the value of e, the greater the contact angle is more important and axial loads eligible are high.

The tapered roller bearings are generally separable, ie that the cone formed by the inner ring and the whole cage-rollers can be mounted separately from the pan (outer ring).

The tapered roller bearings SKF have a contact profile said logarithmic which ensures optimum distribution constraints between contacts roll / path. The design specific surfaces slip shoulder guidance and broad faces rolls improve the training of lubricant film at the end of roller contacts / shoulder. The bearings are more reliable and less sensitive to the spill.
