Tapered roller bearing performance has been enhanced through significant advances in bearing design, material quality, and manufacturing technology. These advances were made possible by the development of analysis methods and testing that pinpoint specific areas for improvement. As a result, maximum bearing performance can be achieved in smaller bearing designs or increased reliability can be realised within existing bearing sizes. Automotive and industrial designers have the opportunity to improve bearing application performance while accomplishing other objectives of lower weight and lower cost.
