Waukesha Bearings horizontal bearing assemblies include highly customized journal or combined journal and thrust bearings designed to interface with an external pressurized oil system or operate fully self-contained.
Expertly engineered to meet each customer’s specifications, these horizontal arrangements can be fitted with an external casing or engineered to interface with the customer’s own housing. The extent of supply, including complete hydraulic lift systems, can be varied to suit application requirements and customer specifications.
Our journal bearing designs range from less than one inch (25 mm) to more than 30 inches (750 mm) in diameter and are available in a wide variety of fixed profile and tilting pad configurations.
Engineers at Waukesha Bearings work collaboratively with customers to understand the performance expectations and operating conditions and then provide a high-performing bearing solution.
With fixed profile designs for lightly loaded applications and advanced tilt pad solutions for more demanding, high-load, high-speed applications, Waukesha Bearings can provide an optimized solution no matter the application.
A wide range of advanced materials allow for operation at significantly higher temperatures and thinner films than babbitt.
