Overhead Cranes

Moving Massive
Loads Reliably

From moving multi-ton loads of molten steel to multi-ton loads of coiled stock, overhead cranes are the powerlifters that keep mill processes in motion. For the bearings used in crane sheaves, heavy-duty sheave blocks and wheel hubs, radial loads are immense, exposure to heat stress and contamination is constant, and access for maintenance purposes is challenging. Reliable bearing operation is crucial.

NSK application-proven solutions for cranes are equally uncompromising – delivering robust and long-life performance in rigorous conditions with predictable and manageable maintenance requirements.


Application-Optimized Solutions

Engineered to contend with rigorous loads amid contaminated and corrosive environments, NSK special design cylindrical roller bearings for crane sheaves deliver optimized performance and operating life.
