CANTON, Ohio, June 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Timken Company (NYSE: TKR) will feature products and aftermarket solutions for the wind industry at the AWEA WINDPOWER 2012 Conference and Exhibition, June 3-6, in Atlanta, Ga.

"Timken helps maximize equipment performance throughout the entire lifecycle of a wind turbine," said Hans Landin, director of process industries original equipment and wind energy for Timken. "By collaborating with designers, manufacturers and operators, Timken develops main shaft and gear drive solutions to help keep equipment running longer with reduced total cost of ownership."

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:

    --  Timken® 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.
    --  The 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.
    --  The Timken® UltraWind(TM) 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.
    --  Animation 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.
    --  Timken EcoPower(TM) 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.
    --  Timken 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.

Throughout AWEA WINDPOWER 2012, Timken wind experts will be available to discuss these and other solutions and show product samples to wind turbine professionals and enthusiasts.
