Gearboxes are used in a very wide range of industrial fields. Thanks to the use of gearboxes, a small rotation force (torque) can be used to produce a much greater rotation force, and a slow rate of revolution can be speeded up. In many industries, the gearbox, which is the equipment that transmits mechanical power, is an essential piece of equipment. This step-up unit is the:
heart of a wind turbine
transmission in an automobile
the reduction gears in a Ferris wheel
By supplying bearings for gearboxes such as these in support of their most important function: “revolving,” UIB believes that it can even be said to be supporting the world.
However, because there are many instances where the breakdown of a gearbox would have serious implications, extremely high reliability is demanded. Naturally, UIB seeks to ensure that its designs closely match customer needs, and the company is always aiming to enhance product quality. UIB supplies bearings that offer long life to reduce equipment maintenance costs, can handle high load capacities, and are extremely reliable.
UIB will continue to pool its comprehensive strengths. With environmental issues firmly in its sights, the company will continue product development efforts so that it can offer the next generation of bearings for more efficient gearboxes that can achieve longer life.
