Compared to most bearings, aircraft landing wheel bearings have a life of extremes. Most of the time they just support the aircraft as it sits on the runway, or are tucked into the belly of the aircraft in flight.
But during landings, these bearings are subjected to extreme loads and rapid acceleration. It’s a demanding bearing application, and one that has no margin for failure.
To help aircraft maintainers ensure that your landing wheel bearings are properly maintained, Timken offers a four-hour training program. Held at your location, this program will give you the information needed to keep wheel bearings well maintained and in top condition.
Some of the topics included in the training are the Timken Best Practices for the following:
- Bearing Removal and Handling
- Bearing Cleaning and Inspection
- Bearing Damage Modes
- Bearing Lubrication
- Bearing Installation
- Bearing Storage
- Bearing Setting and Adjustment.
Included with the training is the new Timken Aircraft Landing Wheel Bearing Maintenance Manual that outlines our 75+ years of experience with 629 performance code bearings.
