Bearings Designed for Machine Tools

In machine tools, designers frequently require bearings that provide long life, extreme stiffness or precision with the ability to handle very high loads.

Design, Maintenance and Repair Services

Timken can help improve machine tool and spindle performance with assistance ranging from optimizing bearing system design to extending service life with maintenance and reconditioning options. Timken works with selected partners around the world to provide end users with high quality precision bearings and related services.


Our expertise in machine tools comes from more than a century of first-hand experience as a bearing manufacturer that relies on machine tools to produce our own products.

Products & Services

Timken offers bearings for machine tools that meet or exceed application needs for rotational accuracy, consistency and rigidity. Our total friction management approach also includes lubrication, condition monitoring equipment and other products "around the bearing." Rather than replace your existing worn bearings, Timken can often repair them at a considerable savings compared to new bearings.
