Schaeffler designed its new Asymmetric Mainshaft Support Bearing for extreme applications where a wind turbine’s mainshaft bearing is threatened by high thrust forces. By optimizing the gearbox side of the bearing with an increased contact angle, potentially damaging thrust is safely transferred through the bearing to the housing support. The result: lower torque, less friction and less heat inside the bearing. Which means less downtime, and more power for the wind turbine.
