The civil and earth works industry forms the backbone of infrastructure development, encompassing projects like road construction, bridges, and building foundations.
These projects demand robust and reliable equipment to handle heavy loads and challenging environments.
At the heart of every machinery used in civil and earth works lie bearings that enable smooth and efficient operation. NTN, in partnership with Motion, introduces the ULTAGE series, a new generation of bearing designs, crafted to meet the demanding requirements of heavy industry applications.
“The ULTAGE series enhances the standards of performance and durability for bearings in the civil and earthworks sector,” says Tony Tormey, Category Manager for Industrial Bearings at Motion.
“These bearings are engineered with advanced materials and innovative design elements to deliver superior load ratings, extended service life, and resistance to contamination.”
One of the key advantages of NTN ULTAGE bearings is their load-bearing capacity. By incorporating maximised roller diameters and high-strength design cages, these bearings can handle heavy loads with ease, ensuring the longevity of critical machinery components.
“Under heavy loading conditions, stress concentration can pose a threat to bearing life. However, NTN’s ULTAGE design tackles this challenge by creating smooth stress distribution across the rolling contact area, reducing edge stress,” says Tormey.
“The result is a longer bearing life even in harsh operating conditions, providing civil and earthworks professionals with enhanced reliability and reduced maintenance requirements.”
Civil and earthworks projects frequently operate in demanding environments, characterised by high temperatures and continuous exposure to contaminants. In this regard, Tormey emphasises that NTN ULTAGE bearings are the ideal solution for thriving in such challenging conditions.
