Timken invented and obtained tapered roller bearing invention back in 1898. This was the birth of Timken bearings, which are widely used in rotating shafts and housings today. Timken bearings are known for managing thrust and radial loads and come in three configurations to suite customer needs. Single-row, double-row and four-row are the three commonly used configurations for Timken bearings. Out of the three, single-row tapered roller bearings are the most widely used type. These are mainly used during equipment assembly. While double-row Timken bearings are used in the automotive and general industries, the four-row Timken bearings are used for applications where a maximum amount of load should be assembled in a minimum space. The performance element of a Timken bearing is based on the parameter – the taper angle. The taper angle is directly proportional to the capacity of handling the thrust and radial loads.
A typical Timken bearing features four components, namely, the cone, the cup, the tapered rollers, and the cage. All these four elements of a Timken bearing is also called the inner ring, the outer ring, rolling elements, and roller retainers, respectively.
