ZKL Group offers its special and large-size bearings for entire range of applications all over the world. One of the latest projects in Russia which was successfully implemented with ZKL bearings was vacuum drum filter. This machine is a key technology in pulp and paper industry. It is a static application where drum rotates at speeds 3 – 4 rpm. During one revolution, pulp is filtrated through filter cloth, solid particles form a cake which is washed, dried and then discharged from the drum. This is repeated revolution by revolution.

ZKL expands its range of main shaft bearings for the wind turbines. The latest set of bearings was designed for a 2.0 MW power plant where the main shaft is fitted with two spherical roller bearings 239/850 and 240/630. Around the world, the ZKL bearings are now being installed by wind power companies in so-called geared drive-train configuration either “three-point suspension” or “four-point suspension”. ZKL continues to strengthen its position as a major supplier of bearings for the energy industry.

ZKL expands its portfolio of wind power products. Currently, 240/850EW33MH bearings for 2.5 MW wind power plants are in the prototype production phase. These bearings are heading to China, where they will be fitted on the main shaft of wind farms.

Drive-train configuration is different compared to other customers. The main shaft torque is still transmitted to the generator via planetary gearbox, however main bearing is only one and bears both – radial and thrust loads. This type of drive-train configuration is known as a “three-point suspension”.

Nowadays, the increasing emphasis is placed on the use of principles of production management according to industry standards 4.0. One such principle is also the use of digitalization of production control with the MES system. A pilot project was launched at ZKL Brno plant, in which automatic data collection from the most busy machines was introduced. Specifically, these are lathes and grinders for the production of large-size bearings.
