NSK’s HP Roller Bearings Increase Operating Speed
2009/7/23 15:59:12


The high-performance spherical roller bearings are interchangeable with standard bearing envelopes and are suitable for a wide variety of applications. The increased performance and extended operating life on offer can extend maintenance schedules on machines for which the performance of machines for which the bearing is specified by the OEM manufacturer.


The bearings can also be used to save weight and improve operational efficiency by enabling some products to be made more compact and lighter at the design stage. Spherical roller bearings (SRB) typically offer a high load capacity and a self-aligning feature that allows for some misalignment of the axis of rotation.


The unitized design of the bearings enables easy handling and installation, making them popular across a range of industries, including steel, pulp and paper, transportation, extraction and construction, which require durability and smooth running performance.


NSK researched the SRB design extensively to identify the limiting factors on bearing life.


If sought to improve the design in order to address them and deliver the extended life of HPS bearings.


Key to the self-aligning performance of SRB is the spherical profile of the bearing rollers acting in the bearing inner and outer-ring raceways. However, the research showed that under rotation, these geometrical forms interact to produce slippage at the contact surface points between the raceways and rollers.


With its HPS design, NSK developed mass-production technology and bearings, which can minimize slippage to prolong running life by more than twice that of conventional products. The cage of a spherical roller bearing is also an important component that plays a major role in the performance of the bearing.


Therefore, the cage must have high dimensional accuracy and functionality. NSK has applied a special nitriding surface treatment to the high-precision pressed steel cage of the HPS series, which can significantly reduce wear in harsh operating environments.


Compared with usual nitriding, NSK’s treatment forms a finer and harder surface with more uniform hardness. Since the special treatment is conducted at high temperatures, the dimensional accuracy of the cage is inevitably affected a means of ensuring high accuracy of the cage after treatment. As a result, the problem of cage wear under conditions of continuous running at high speeds, which restricted any increase of the limiting speed of the bearing, has been solved.


This is evidenced by the 20 per cent increase in limiting speed achieved by the HPS series design.


The high durability and superb running performance of the HP spherical roller bearings are a result of consolidated technologies developed by NSK using the latest analysis technology, severity testing and refined production methods.


Initially, 42 sizes with outside diameters ranging from 80 to 260mm will be marketed globally by NSK for a variety of industries and applications.
