Bearings for tilting technology

Needle roller/thrust cylindrical roller bearings


These units are used in the drive units for the tilting system and are characterized by a high level of reliability and a long operating life. They consist of an outer ring with radial and axial raceways, two shaft locating washers, an inner ring, a radial needle roller and cage assembly and two thrust cylindrical roller and cage assemblies.

The locating bearings support not only high radial forces but also axial forces on both sides. They are axially preloaded with INA precision locknuts thereby ensuring clearance-free operation. Needle roller/thrust cylindrical roller bearings are relubricated via the outer ring and can be sealed using a DRS seal carrier assembly. Designs with outer rings suitable for flange mounting are also available.
