The Timken Company engineers, manufactures, and markets mechanical components and steel. The company’s Timken bearings and engineered steel bars and tubes, as well as transmissions, gearboxes, chain, and related products and services, support various markets worldwide. Products The company's portfolio includes power transmission components and systems, engineered surfaces and coatings, lubricants, and seals, as well as aftermarket services, including bearing and gearbox remanufacture and repair. It also manufactures helicopter transmissions, engineered alloy steels bars, and mechanical tubing, as well as finished and semi-finished steel components. The company manufactures and manages global supply chains for multiple product lines, including anti-friction bearings, mechanical power transmission solutions, engineered steel, and related precision steel components designed to operate in demanding environments. Bearings and Power Transmission Solutions The uses for the company’s bearings could be found in transportation applications that include passenger cars and trucks, heavy trucks, helicopters, airplanes, and trains. Timken components are also used in various industrial applications, ranging from paper and steel mills, mining, oil and gas extraction and production, gear drives, health and positioning control, wind mills, and food processing. The company manufactures or in some cases purchases the required components and then sells them assembled or as individual components in various configurations and sizes. In addition to bearings, it provides mechanical power transmission components, including chains, augers, gear boxes, seals, lubricants, and related products and services. Tapered Roller Bearings The tapered roller bearing is the company's original entrant to the anti-friction bearing sector. Tapered rollers permit ready absorption of both radial and axial load combinations. For this reason, tapered roller bearings are primarily adapted to reducing friction where shafts, gears, or wheels are used. Bearings consist of four components, including the cone or inner race; the cup or outer race; the rollers, which roll between the cup and cone; and the cage, which serves as a retainer and maintains proper spacing between the rollers. Precision Cylindrical and Ball Bearings The company's aerospace facilities produce ball and cylindrical bearings for applications in space and robotic vehicles, including Curiosity, the newest Mars rover. Customers for these precision bearings also include manufacturers of medical and health equipment, machine tools, critical motion control systems, and precision robotics. These bearings utilize ball and straight rolling elements and are in the super-precision end of the general ball and straight roller bearing product range in the bearing industry. A majority of these bearings products are custom-designed bearings and spindle assemblies. They utilize specialized materials and coatings in applications that subject the bearings to extreme operating conditions of speed and temperature. Spherical and Cylindrical Roller Bearings The company produces spherical and cylindrical roller bearings for gear drives, rolling mills, and other industrial and infrastructure development applications. These products are sold worldwide to original equipment manufacturers and industrial distributors serving major end-markets sectors, including construction and mining, natural resources, defense, pulp and paper production, rolling mills and general industrial goods. Chains and Augers Through the acquisition of Drives LLC, the company manufactures precision roller chain, pintle chain, agricultural conveyor chain, engineering class chain, oil field roller chain and auger products. These highly engineered products are vital to a range of mobile and industrial machinery applications, including agriculture, oil and gas, aggregate and mining, primary metals, forest products and other heavy industries. They also are utilized in the food and beverage and packaged goods sectors, which often require high-end, specialty products, including stainless-steel and corrosion-resistant roller c
