DanOil – Danieli Oil Film Bearings

Latest generation for flat product mill equipment thanks to Danieli's expertise in design and manufacturing processes for the metal industry.

The back-up rolls of rolling mills are designed to withstand the forces generated by the rolling process, and therefore require bearings capable of carrying very high loads. To ensure that the mill stand is as sturdy and reliable as possible the bearings also must be sturdy and compact: oil film bearings satisfy this requirement, which is one of the reasons they are a well-proven design in this field.

Oil-film bearings engineered by Danieli are highly advanced and fundamental components of modern rolling mill technology.

Our experience as a rolling mill manufacturer *for flat and long products, steel, aluminium and non-ferrous metals) as well as our many years of teamwork with customers, provide the best foundation for manufacturing oil film bearings.

Our manufacturing centers in Italy (Buttrio), China (Changshu) and in India (Chennai), manufacture and supply DanOil bearings to the customer, even if based on non-Danieli drawings, providing complete assistance from detail engineering to installation through dedicated training courses.
