Timken® ADAPT™ combines cylindrical and spherical roller bearing designs into one easy-to-assemble, high-capacity configuration. It’s ideal for applications with combined misalignment and axial displacement.ADAPT designed for continuous casters.

The Timken® ADAPT™ bearing combines the traditional cylindrical roller bearing and spherical roller bearing configurations. Its proprietary outer race and roller profiles plus a cylindrical inner ring combine the key attributes of both bearing types. This unique three-point contact design geometry provides simultaneous misalignment and axial displacement performance, optimizes contact stress distribution, and helps promote roller stability. The result is a more dynamic, more reliable bearing.


Cross section illustration showing the design of the ADAPT bearing allows for simultaneous axial float and a misalignment capacity of 0.5 degrees. The rollers align with the inner ring regardless of axial displacement and misalignment.

  • Size range: 100 mm to 170 mm bore (3.94 in. to 6.69 in.)
  • Full-complement design with a roller retainer to help eliminate roller fallout
  • Simultaneous full misalignment and axial displacement capabilities
  • Unique internal geometry optimizes contact stress and roller stability
  • Standard ISO dimensions simplify interchange with toroidal and spherical roller bearings
  • High static radial capacity for maximum reliability
  • Misalignment capability of +/-0.5 degrees (8.7 millirads)
