The Skefko Ball Bearing Co. Ltd. manufacture double row spherical roller bearings, a type specially designed and introduced to solve the problems arising with railway vehicles. Single bearing axleboxes are also used on the driving and coupled axles of locomotives. The spherical roller bearing gives no less than a 40 percent increase in its carrying capacity. Typical examples of axleboxes incorporating the redesigned spherical roller bearing are illustrated. Spherical roller bearings occupy a central position in modern railway bearing engineering because their special features offer advantages which can be used in a wide range of applications. On four-wheel wagons two bearings are used in each axlebox.
