Timken adopts standard part-number system for bearings

Jan. 30, 2013

The Timken Co. has simplified the process for finding and ordering driveline center support bearings by switching its parts nomenclature to align with familiar industry part numbers.

“This change makes it faster and easier for our customers to find the right Timken driveline center support bearings, also called hanger bearings, for major truck applications,” said Dan Humphrey, manager of Timken commercial vehicle aftermarket sales in the United States and Canada.

“For customer convenience during this transition, our systems and packaging feature both the original and updated part numbers,” he noted.

Timken driveline center support bearings have brackets made of reinforced heavy-gauge cold-rolled steel for strength and durability.  A rubber cushion inside each bracket provides support to absorb and isolate vibrations, extending service life in rough environments, the company said.

Timken bearing inserts are pre-greased and pre-sealed with an additional grease barrier between the bearing retainer caps and sealed bearing to extend bearing life.
