Tandem bearings technical Information :
Tandem bearings offer an optimum solution wherever thefollowing requirements apply:
1. small radial design envelope
2. high axial forces
3. long operating life
4. low frictional energy.
Tandem bearings have proven effective principally in gearboxesfor single and twin screw extruders in the rubber and plasticsindustry.
Other possible applications include:
1. deep hole drilling equipment
2. friction welding machines.
Tandem bearings consist of several axial cylindrical rollerbearings arranged in line, A system of rings and washersmatched to each other ensures that all stages of the tandem bearing are subjected to uniform load at all times irrespective of the ratio C/F. The rings and washers are made from hardenedsteel. Tandem bearings are predominantly fitted with standardaxial cylindrical roller and bearing assemblies.
