With more than 70 years of experience in gear drives, we’ve become a trusted source for both gear drive manufacturers and end users. References from all over the world verify our wide-ranging industry-related competence.
We work closely in development collaborations with our gear drive customers – continually improving product efficiency, quality and reliability through a mutual exchange of industry experience.
We advise not only on bearing selection and correct fitting practices, but also offer proprietary calculation tools for analyzing the bearing technology of the machine design.
Analysis and Design
Our engineers use a powerful analytical software tool developed by Timken to predict application performance for the bearings, the gears, the shafts and the housing.
Our software tools provide engineers with the information needed to make critical design and performance decisions early in the development cycle. This can reduce development lead times by identifying potential problems before physical testing begins.
The power of the software lies in the fact that all Timken analytical models have been gathered in a single tool, and that these models have been validated versus experimental results. The package is also extremely user friendly with an impressive list of graphical input/output features.
