is the base of the TTS brand and the basic requirement
for global competitiveness. TTS is focused on
the progress to be able to assure long lasting
performance. We often develop innovative solutions
in collaboration with our customers’ technical
experts to get the best performances ever.
Bearings must support heavy loads and impact shocks,
quick speed variations and rough accelerations
TTS makes huge design efforts daily to be able
to provide long lasting bearings: the goal is
the maximization of the performance and the reduction
Split bearings combine the two crucial elements
of running cost-effective machinery: flexibility
Flexibility because the split design allows
access without the need to dismantle components
related to the bearing.
Reliability because they are able to function
in what might otherwise be thought of as 'problem'
The key features of split bearings mean they
will function effectively anywhere your designer
has the imagination to incorporate them:
• the swivel cartridge accommodates angular
• the constantly concentric sealing offers
• only grease lubrication is needed for
This results in bearings that are able to withstand
harsh working conditions while keeping downtime
to a minimum. They are straightforward to retro-fit
and can replace most spherical or bush bearings
in rotational equipment. Increasingly, split
bearings are specified at the design stage due
to the significant reduction in maintenance
downtime - and therefore greater return on investment
– they represent.
Spiral rolling bearing:
Specialize in the design and manufacturing
of bearings for strand guiding rolls. Every
segment of a bow casting machine requires a
different bearing design. Can provide all of
these different bearing designs.
The main advantage of the spiral bushing bearings
is that the roll jackets can be used many times.
It is possible to remachine the roll mantle
once it has been worn or bent due to the temperature
influence. In this case the bearing seats also
must be reworked. In this design, only the spiral
outer bushings and not the complete bearings
must be exchanged. All the other bearing parts
can be used again. The reworking of the bearing
seats is done in steps of 1 mm increase of diameter.
For example, a bore of 105 mm is increased to
106 mm, and a spiral outer bushing with 1 mm
greater diameter is installed.
This can be repeated to a diameter of 110 mm.
The roller mantles can be reworked up to five
times. This results in a substantial cost saving,
especially since all other bearing parts may
also be reused up to six times.
In the down section of slab casters are rolls
with proportionately larger roll diameters,
Ofren a center support in form of a split and
water-cooled bearing in used. These bearings
are custom designed and these rolls are also
mounted by one fixed and several floating bearings.
