Cup and Cone Bearings: These angular contact bearings offer greater strength than sealed cartridge industrial bearings. This is due to their ability to displace lateral and vertical loads more effectively for super smooth rotation and longer durability. Angular contact bearings also allow easier maintenance, adjustability and serviceability.
Centre Lock System: This system makes rotor installation easy with its spline mount and a lock ring design. The lock ring mounting system reduces the total working hours by shortening the amount of time of both installation and removal. In addition, the secure fixing by the spline mount enhances precision and rigidity, while improving braking efficiency.
