Mining & Construction
The mining and construction industry is challenged by harsh environments, extremely high load capacities and non-stop operation. Whether it’s trucks, tunnel boring machines, vibrating screens, conveyors or off-road dump trucks, these are the places where bearing-intensive work takes place. Bearings used in the mining and construction industries can operate in extremely harsh environments.
The operating environment of bearings in the mining and construction industries can be extremely harsh. One or of the following situations may occur:
Heavy loads combined with shock loads
Light load and high speed rotation
Heavy duty low speed rotation
In order to shorten the development time of bearings, it is necessary to ensure the measurement and design accuracy of rolling and plain bearings from the beginning. The same is true in the areas of raw material extraction and processing. During the development phase, experienced bearing specialists can save you time and money with years of expertise.
AUB offers a wide range of maintenance solutions to reduce maintenance costs, prevent unplanned downtime and increase machine availability.
With specially developed stock management, we offer our customers a selection of bearings in raw material extraction and processing. In this way, we can significantly reduce our customers’ bearing maintenance costs and ensure fast delivery at fair market prices.
Our Products For The Mining & Construction Industry: Performance, Reliability, Precision
Special solutions: We recommend split spherical or cylindrical roller bearings to reduce maintenance costs and significantly reduce downtime. These are particularly effective in difficult-to-access locations. For articulated/rotary joints, we now recommend using high-capacity four-point bearings in combination with maintenance-free spherical plain bearings.
Standard design and special bearings
The conditions of systems and machines in raw material extraction and processing vary from application to application. The concept, design, and structure mainly depend on load, speed, service life, and environmental conditions.
For many applications, designers can use standard types and designs of rolling bearings. However, some applications require special rolling bearings, and we have formulated specific industry requirements. The largest of these bearings used in tunnel boring machines can have an outer diameter greater than 4 meters.
