The NTN & SNR-programme
Apart from its own WLT brandmark, Waelzlagertechnik has been offering its customers Japanese and French knowhow for many years in the fields of rolling bearings and drive technology from NTN and SNR.
Thanks to the merger of NTN and SNR in the spring of 2008, WLT customers are in the favourable position to use the most advanced Japanese and French technologies from one source.
The NTN and SNR trademarks account for a turnover of approx. 3.7 bn Euro of one of the three biggest suppliers worldwide.
Leading market positions in the fields of ball bearings, cylinder roller bearings, needle roller bearings and tapered roller bearings are combined with leading industry solutions in the initial equipment and spare parts fields.
NTN offer an impressive variety of sealing systems for deep groove ball bearings, an innovative selection of materials and an optimum design for the whole lifetime.
The TOPLINE series of SNR offers WLT customers high precision storage technology for extreme operating conditions at any time.
Though originally developed for wheel bearing sets, a new rolling contact bearing standard for intelligent sensor bearings was created with ASB-bearings. ASB is a corporate trademark of SNR. The term “Active Sensor Bearing” stands for active revolutions per minute (rpm) measurement and is offered worldwide as the open standard. In the future, mechatronic measurement tasks, such as speed, position, as well as bearing load and diagnosis will be integrated into the bearing itself. Typical applications are found in the automotive and railway industries and in industrial fields with monitored process control, including aviation and space travel.
