NSK is a global network offers many kinds of bearings. They have many talented engineers that are always working and designing new products that would fir individual needs. They recently developed different designs that are matched to the required main rotor bearings. It is known that many of the bearings especially while they are exposed to a lot of mechanical stress do give up at the end. But the NSK engineers made the main bearing to be able to be exposed to very high wind loads. Aviation bearing parts are complicated and must be precise and this is exactly what the NSK engineers did. They made a precise and complicated piece that is beneficial. “It is capable of withstanding radial and axial loads, including the resulting bending movement of the rotor shaft” one source stated.
These new bearings are especially made for wind turbines. Wind turbines are huge machines, they weigh over 200 tons. Many manufactures have failed at providing reliable and stable bearing for such a large machine. NSK corporation has been one of the few that could provide bearings to wind turbines. They also apply bearings to the United States, India, China, and many other places. They are very reliable and convenient, also they are contributing to the environment and their products are environmentally friendly which makes them more prone for use. Their newest piece is capable of bending movements and is oh high performance, it has been developed especially for specific kinds of wind turbines. They have selection of new designs that consumers can customize based on their needs.
