Aerospace Rod Ends

When a 500-ton aircraft touches down on the runway, the entire load is transmitted from the airframe to the ground through the landing wheels. Under these extreme conditions, the wheels accelerate from 0 to 170+ MPH and heat up from sub-zero at 30,000 feet to extreme heat under breaking, all in a fraction of a second.

Timken has developed a range of FAA approved landing wheel bearings which handle these loads safely landing after landing. All Timken aircraft landing wheel bearings are subjected to inspection code 629, in either 20629 (imperial) or N0629 (metric) designations.
