Users of rolling bearings across Europe can now draw upon the newly updated version of a key industry resource – the revised and renewed Rolling Bearings catalogue from NSK. This essential 700+ page guide to rolling bearing technology is available as an online E-Book and in print.
Rolling bearings are among the principal components of machinery, equipment and systems across industry. With literally thousands of different types made available by NSK throughout Europe, nearly every single one is now contained in the latest Rolling Bearings catalogue.
Inside, users will find a host of technical information, including explanations of different rolling bearing types and features, as well as selection criteria based on parameters such as size, speed, tolerances/clearances, preloads, friction, lubrication, bearing materials and more. In addition, as part of the update, the bearing tables now include information on all available NSKHPS high-performance Rolling Bearing types, as well Plummer Block and Neuweg products. The thermal reference speeds for Cylindrical Roller Bearings and Tapered Roller Bearings have also been updated.
Access is available online via the NSK interactive E-Book at www.nsk-literature.com/en/rolling-bearings (all NSK catalogues can be accessed as E-Books at www.nsk-literature.com). If preferred, a print version is also available. The new catalogue is only available in English at present.
