Caster Bearing

SKF bearing engineered for support rollers in continuous caster operations at steel mills.

15-Jan-SKF-Bearings-360SKF unveiled a line of caster bearings designed to cope with the axial expansion and contraction of rolls associated with induced axial loads and temperature fluctuations. The company’s spherical roller bearings feature two rows of patented self-guiding rollers with a common sphered raceway in the outer ring and an optimized internal design.

These features serve to reduce friction, minimize heat generation, accommodate shaft misalignments and heavy loads, and contribute to longer bearing life. SKF CARB toroidal types are self-aligning radial bearings merging the benefits of standard “locating/non-locating” bearing systems typically found in continuous caster applications. They are designed to accommodate misalignment and normally supplied as full complement bearings to take advantage of their increased load rating.
