Mining Capabilities 

Timken invests heavily in gaining a better understanding of the challenging conditions found in mining, so that we can develop solutions that make sense for the industry. With more than 60 years of experience in mining, we’ve become a trusted resource for both equipment manufacturers and the people who operate and maintain mining equipment. From longwall shearers and shaker screens to massive draglines and shovels, Timken applies its history of providing quality bearings for mining equipment, large and small, throughout the world.


Our years of experience in supporting equipment makers and mine operators provide us with unique insights that lead to new technology. Many ideas for innovative products and services develop as a result of working onsite with customers. Isolated problems sometimes spawn industry- wide solutions. For instance, the extreme debris and contamination present in mining and construction equipment pushed Timken to develop engineered surfaces, heat-treating processes and debris-resistant bearings.
