The wheel hub assembly plays a critical role in the overall performance of a car or a truck. Its main purpose is to hold the wheel and tire together by providing ample support all the time. This is very important to keep the vehicle moving continuously through the rotation of the wheel and the tire. Bearings are components that make a vehicle's motion possible, allowing moving parts to rotate with minimal friction and taking a load. Without bearings, the vehicle's parts would quickly wear out from friction. Typically, bearings in a vehicle have to deal with radial and thrust loading. Radial load makes the bearing rotate or roll as a result of tension. Thrust load, or axial load, is associated with the bearing's carrying capacity and is applied parallel to the bearing's axis. When it comes to the vehicle, its weight carry a radial load, however, when it goes around a turn, the bearings deal with a thrust load from the cornering forces.
As a global leader in manufacturing bearings of all types, Timken makes every effort to ensure each and every bearing will stand up to extreme situations, successfully handle loading, and feature improved uptime. Using its wealth of experience designing and manufacturing bearings, well-equipped production facilities, and expert craftmanshift, Timken produces bearingsthat are synonymous with reliability.
