Bearing designed for the Cement Industry

The cement industry, which is RKB’s third most significant sector in terms of sales share, continues to be a major topic these days due to many current and future impressive infrastructure projects. The construction and infrastructure industries, where RKB also has a notable presence providing bearings worldwide for various purposes, heavily depend on construction materials like cement, ready-mix concrete, aggregates, and precast concrete blocks.

Today, we’re going to learn more directly from RKB Sales Director Alessandro Russi about the company’s status as a bearings supplier to customers in the cement industry.

Hello, Alessandro! Let’s start with a short introduction about your role at RKB.

I’ve been a part of RKB for over 16 years. Now I lead the sales department and work closely with our field teams and extended distribution network as well as with a large number of customers from a wide range of industries.

How do bearings contribute to the cement industry?

As we know, no matter the industry, bearings are indispensable for the manufacturing process. For cement, they are part of every stage, from the extraction of naturally occurring minerals to their transformation into construction materials. We are supplying large volumes of bearings for various machinery, including high- pressure grinding rolls, vibrating screens, apron feeders, separators, vibratory hammers, cone crushers, jaw crushers, hammer crushers, vertical and horizontal mills, roller presses, ball mills, rotary kilns, gearboxes, conveyors, concrete mixer trucks, and bucket wheel excavators. I hope I didn’t miss anything.
