The Timken Company will supply large-bore bearings for critical applications in cement-making equipment used by the Jaypee Group, India’ fourth-largest cement producer.
Timken will provide spherical and cylindrical roller bearings for use in vertical roller mills and fans installed at Jaypee Group’ plant in Rewa, India. The bearings will be installed in positions that are deemed critical for efficient operation of the vertical rolling mills.
A longstanding supplier to the Jaypee Group, Timken already supplies tapered roller bearings to the company for use in its heavy earth-moving machinery.
Jaypee Group currently produces 7Mta of cement. Through planned expansion, the company expects to produce 30.5Mta by 2011. I
