IndustriesIn its century-old tradition, ZKL is a proven and reliable supplier with certification for a number of industrial companies. The produced range of standard and special bearings of the ZKL brand meets the most demanding customer requirements in a wide range of individual industries.
Wind energyThe trend in wind energy is to reduce production costs per MWh of electricity produced while maintaining the quality and reliability of power plants. The innovative ZKL main rotor bearing solutions for different main shaft bearings arrangement allow you to remain competitive and efficient at the same time.
RailwayRail transport can be described as the safest and most economical land transport of people and cargo. As in other industries, in the railway industry we place great emphasis on the reliability of individual parts. We follow the current trend of extending service intervals. This reduces customer costs related to the operation of the rail vehicle.
Steel industryRolling mills, continuous rolling mills or converters are characterized by such unfavourable operating conditions as only few other applications. Ever-present dust, high ambient temperature, high humidity, shock loads, high rotational speeds - bearings in steel mills and smelters are commonly exposed to all this.
Raw material processingSignificant temperature fluctuations, high level of dust, humidity or vibration and shock loads - mining and processing of raw materials simply takes place in very demanding operating conditions. In ZKL, we offer a wide range of technical solutions for individual segments of this industry. We make the most of the design of the bearings so that the operation of each device is as economical as possible.
Mining industryUnder the term heavy engineering, imagine heavy vehicles specially designed for civil engineering, surface and deep mining works. Previously, these works were performed by draft animals or simple machines. However, since the beginning of the 20th century, this field of engineering has changed significantly. Today, it is about sophisticated, automated and powerful devices. We have in mind, for example, wheeled excavators, bulldozers, cranes, excavators and loaders. In addition to such machines, ordinary vehicles only look like children's toys.
In the case of agricultural machines, customers prefer easy assembly, maintenance and replacement of bearings. However, devices often have non-standard dimensions and shapes, which means that special bearing designs are also required: for example, with non-standard installation dimensions, special sealing system requirements or atypical external geometry to facilitate their assembly. In ZKL, we not only offer a standard range of bearings, but we also provide design of bearings tailored to your requirements.
