The Timken booth (No. 5949) will feature several products in addition to new exhibits that reflect the company's range of product capabilities. Exclusive exhibits include:    oTimken® Wear-Resistant Roller Bearings for wind-energy applications,     designed to reduce life-limiting wear problems including micropitting on     main shaft spherical roller bearings and micropitting, smearing and     brittle flaking on wind turbine gearbox cylindrical bearings.   oThe Timken® Online Intelligence System (OIS), a breakthrough condition     monitoring/data collection and reporting system specifically designed for     low-speed wind turbine applications. Timken will have a live     demonstration featuring the unique technical capabilities of the OIS     system.   oThe Timken® UltraWind™ Tapered Roller Bearing, offering the highest     bearing life ratings in the industry, as verified by Germanischer Lloyd in     2012. This pre-loaded bearing has superior stiffness to manage the motion     of the main shaft and rotor and also contains raceway profiles designed to     control maximum stress levels which provide greater product reliability.   oAnimation of Timken's new Wind Energy Research and Development Center in     Canton, OH (currently under construction; opening scheduled for November     2012)  demonstrating the facility's product testing capabilities.   oTimken EcoPower™ Induction Heaters, useful for both mounting and     dismounting components with tight fits, and utilizing flexible coils for     handling large wind components. The units save time by heating work     pieces faster than conventional methods, reduce energy consumption and     create a safer work environment.   oTimken planetary bearing solutions, which include cylindrical roller     bearings, the semi-integrated planet-pac and the fully integrated flexpin     bearing. These solutions combine planetary pins, bearing raceways and     planetary gears in various combinations to help achieve lean, compact and     reliable wind turbine gearbox design. This is especially important as wind     turbine size and capacity scale upward to meet the goals of the power     generation industry.
