Rock-solid bearing products that meet the rigorous requirements of the industry.

At the core of every mining operation is a complex array of mining machines, from compact, yet powerful, continuous miners in underground mining to the larger-than-life draglines found in surface mining. Even with some of today’s most complex equipment, mining is still, at its core, a fairly simple process that can be broken down into three basic components: mining, transport and removal.

NTN has bearings for each of these processes. With our experience in the mining, construction, agriculture, and heavy-duty truck markets, we have the products capable of performing in the dirty, harsh environments of mines and exceeding reliability and life requirements.

We offer complete wheel kits for use on the 10SC and 21SC shuttle cars, available as either a complete kit or components. For conveyor-belt drives, we have a complete line of spherical roller bearings and housing.  Additionally, for continuous miners, we offer a complete line of case-carburized, tapered roller bearings for use in cutter heads and gathering pots.

Typical products found in the mining industry:

  • Ball bearings
  • Spherical roller bearings
  • Sealed spherical roller bearings
  • Constant velocity joints (CVJ)
  • Angular contact bearings
  • Tapered roller bearings
