Steyr, Austria, March 2013. This year at the Motion, Drive and Automation trade fair in Hannover, NKE Austria GmbH will exhibit rolling bearings for industrial gearboxes in various applications. Bearings from NKE are used for example in plant construction, materials handling, in rail vehicles, metal production and processing, mining, heavy machinery, and in the special application of wind energy systems.

Rolling bearings are immensely important elements of industrial gearboxes, and they must satisfy extremely demanding specifications. For these exacting applications, NKE offers cylindrical roller bearings, spherical roller bearings, tapered roller bearings, angular contact ball bearings, deep groove ball bearings, four point contact bearings, and special bearings built to customer specifications.
