Oil-film roll-neck bearings

Oil film roll-neck bearings are highly-developed components used in modern rolling mill technology. Yet, even under the most adverse operating conditions, they need to meet all demands for minimum maintenance costs and long service life to ensure the constant availability of the rolling mill.

We have banked more than 60 years of experience in the manufacture, maintenance, and modernization of the oil film roll-neck bearings. So here is a unique opportunity to share in our know-how.
