NBC’s approach has always included dialogue with customers and an understanding of their needs. Solutions have gone beyond standard products and bearings to allied and specially designed and customized responses. Special and allied products are a natural consequence.
This has also led to NBC being one of the very few manufacturers of very large diameter bearings in more than 200 sizes for railroad applications – axle boxes for wagons, traction motors and bearing components for passenger coaches. Large diameter bearings are also produced for steel plants and power generation plants.
Self-aligning Spherical roller bearings are used in Meter Gauge, Broad Gauge and EMU Passenger coach wheel application. These bearings are used with axle box housing and end fittings. Cylindrical roller bearings are also used as Traction Motor armature bearings in Rail Locomotives. They are used in pairs and are both riveted and rivet-less.
