The 100-year saga of The Timken Company is a testament to the enduring power of innovation, grit and periodic self-renewal. It is the story of a quest to solve one of industry's oldest, most limiting and expensive challenges: friction. Today's Timken combines materials science with bearing technology to produce products that range from a half ounce to nine tons and help power and control applications that span disk drives, drilling rigs, dental drills and rolling mills. Today's automotive bearing is less than half the size and 90 percent lighter than its ancestor - and carries twice the load.
