The Timken name stands for high quality and outstanding performance. Using our capabilities in bearing technology, manufacturing, application knowledge and engineering, we provide smart, cost-effective friction management and power transmission solutions. That’s the Timken experience.
Our latest wind-energy innovations include:
Timken® UltraWind Tapered Roller Bearings
optimize drive train simplicity and reliability by designing a system approach of single- and double-row tapered roller bearings.
Timken® Wind Energy Lubrication System
that provides an engineered approach to lubricating main shaft bearings, which helps improve efficiency and maximize bearing performance.
Timken® Wear-Resistant Bearings
provide more debris tolerance and up to 3.5 times greater L10 life for main shaft and gearbox bearings. They reduce the life-limiting wear problems of micropitting for main shaft SRBs as well as micropitting, smearing and brittle flaking for CRBs used in gearboxes.
Timken® Wind Energy Seals provide superior main shaft sealing and grease retention, including a non-contact, labyrinth design to help extend seal life and reduce bearing maintenance.
Timken® Online Intelligence System provides sophisticated condition monitoring of key turbine components using a combination of HD Shock Pulse and Intelligent Software.
Timken® Planet Pac and Timken® Integrated Flexpins provide power dense solutions to increase performance and reliability of gearboxes.
Timken® Bearing Remanufacturing Services offer the flexibility of repairing main shaft and gearbox bearings for a fraction of the cost and quick turnaround.
