mageba scope

mageba delivered 16 RESTON-SPHERICAL bearings KF20 capable to bear 20’000 kN vertical load and 4 RESTON-SPHERICAL bearings KF24 with a vertical load capacity of 24’000 kN. These impressive vertical loads are necessitated due to a sophisticated steel truss roof structure which is directly embedded on mageba’s spherical bearings. Further to the high vertical loads, the bearings can resist horizontal loads of up to 5’300 kN and allow a certain rotation on the horizontal level in order to compensate the temperature born deformation and movements of the giant steel trusses.

In line with the high mageba standard, the bearings are equipped with ROBO-SLIDE, a high performance sliding material allowing a nearly friction free rotation of the bearings rotating surface.
