The MORGOIL® Bearing has been the premier oil film bearing utilized in rolling mills for the metals industry since the early 1930’s. In the 1970’s and 1980’s, Morgan Construction, a predecessor company of Primetals Technologies, developed KL® sleeve technology to improve bearing performance in rolling precision products and DF® sealing technology to eliminate oil leakage. In the extremely competitive 1990’s, the company invested in the world’s only backup roll oil film bearing test facility. Through the use of this facility and the design data generated, MORGOIL engineers have developed the KLX® sleeve to increase bearing capacity and provide a more cost-effective option.
The KLX is the latest evolution of the MORGOIL Bearing. It improves on all areas of the previous KL Bearing. The KLX offers higher load capacity for the same size bearing, and lower part counts to simplify maintenance and reduce both initial and operational costs. Intellectual property development and protection is a key focus as demonstrated by the extensive patent portfolio maintained by Primetals Technologies.
Primetals Technologies focuses on customer needs and can provide custom engineered solutions for all requests. The company also manufactures and reconditions other flat mill equipment, including
- Automatic gauge control cylinders
