ULTAGE® by NTN, The Ultimate Technology for Industrial Bearings
What is ULTAGE®?
Coined by combining the words “ultimate” and “stage”, ULTAGE® is a manufacturing technology founded and developed by the engineers of NTN Japan with the aim of decreasing maintenance costs while increasing the service life and rotational speed of industrial bearings.
Using improved design elements, steel quality, and heat treatment processes, the ULTAGE® bearing series can withstand extreme operational conditions, harsh environments, vibrations, or load imbalances thus making this range the ultimate choice for Middle East and Africa’s industrial sector.
ULTAGE on NTN Spherical Roller Bearings
Depending on the type of spherical roller bearings (SRB), the performance of NTN SRB ULTAGE® range can last 2-5 times than the regular ones. Thanks to NTN engineers’ large roller design, these have the highest load capacity in the industry and are known to endure high temperatures of up to 200˚C.
Other unique features:
- Load and Speed– considered to have the world’s highest speed and load capacity
- Cage Strength– some types have increased strength of up to 55% than regular SRB
- Decreased heat generation– some types can decrease heat up to 10% than regular SRB
Also available from NTN-SNR, the ULTAGE® technology is similarly applied to cylindrical roller bearings, tapered roller bearings, angular contact ball bearings, and high precision bearings.
