Forbes* coined it the “best ever” football stadium. It’s hosted sold-out Beyonce concerts for 70,000 fans. Widely-regarded as a remarkable feat of architectural engineering, Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium’s retractable roof can open in just eight minutes for the ultimate wow factor.
We help make it possible. Timken® tapered roller bearings equip the two-wheeled mechanisms, or bogeys, that run along a rail system to assist each 500-ton steel roof “petal” retract.
