Rolling mill bearing ‒ WG type

RENK rolling mill bearings in the WG range are designed for extreme axial strain. They were developed primarily for the mounting of rolling mill drive units and large electrical machines in which high axial loads occur at low speeds and a high level of protection against damage must be ensured at extreme loads.
This range incorporates the experience we have gained in numerous ranges of RENK bearings. Bearing shells from the SC range come into play here, for example, as well as seals from the E range of bearings and RENK RD slide shoes from the axial bearing area. Using these components therefore offers the advantage of simplified spare parts stocking. In many cases, fixed and floating bearings with the same radial parts and seals can be fitted. Meanwhile, the wear parts are stocked components to a large extent and can be delivered on short notice.
WG bearings have a welded housing, and its strength makes it suitable for withstanding maximum axial shock loads. WG bearings are therefore especially suitable for use as thrust bearings where expensive system components need to be protected against axial forces in the event of an accident. This compact construction and the optimized arrangement of the bearing elements have resulted in a cost-effective welded solution.
