BALERNA - The RKB Group has successfully developed and manufactured a new design spherical roller bearing with wider outer ring (WOR) for the gearbox of a concrete mixer. 

Among other things, this special bearing type has been optimized through Finite Element Analysis to sustain additional loads and friction at low operating speeds (max 20 rpm), increase permissible misalignment up to ±6° and extend rating life.

Further details on the project can be found in pdf format:
