This commitment can be seen in our Vision and Principles.
A half century ago fluid film bearings were Waukesha Bearings’ first product, and we remain a worldwide leader in this time-tested technology. Fluid film bearings are lubricated and cooled by a continuous supply of a filtered liquid, typically oil, which minimizes heat generation by carrying it away in the lubricant flow. Contact between bearing surfaces commonly occurs only at start-up and in the final stages of rundown. When appropriately maintained in their proper use, the working life of a fluid film bearing is theoretically indefinite.
Regardless of type, each fluid film bearing from Waukesha Bearings is custom designed and built to order under the supervision of industry-leading engineering experts. Our engineers work with you, lending their design expertise to create the product that fits the application best. Technical details are in our download library.
A Magnetic Bearing is an electro magnetic device, which maintains the relative position of a rotating assembly (rotor) with respect to a stationary part (stator). The electro magnetic forces implemented for this are controlled by an electronic control cabinet. An active Magnetic Bearing is, therefore, made up of three distinct parts: the bearing itself; the electronic control system; the auxiliary bearings (known as RDS, Rotor Delevitation System).
