The VFTX and VFTV series of tapered roller thrust bearings are designed to carry high heavy thrust loads at low speed. These bearings use a full complement of tapered rollers, a convex or concave top plate and a flat lower plate. Components are made from case hardened steel to meet the service demands of this application. Threaded inserts are added to the top and bottom plates in order to use eye bolts during handling. These thrust bearings are primarily designed and used in the screw-down mechanism of rolling mills producing plate and strip. These bearings are placed between the screw and the chock body to reduce friction so adjustments can be made to adjust gauge, thickness, accurately.
