Steel production equipment are operated in extremely harsh environments, where machinery is exposed to high temperatures, water and mill scale. The bearings used in this equipment must continually withstand heavy loads and high-speed rotation. JTEKT is a full-service provider for bearings, drive shafts, and oil seals.
Hub units are wheel bearings combined with various peripheral parts, which in a single component play a vital role in supporting vehicle motion. JTEKT produces two types: one supports vehicle weight while delivering smooth rotation, and the other does that as well as assisting in the transmission of the driving force from the engine to the wheel.
