Extreme reliability under extreme conditions
Our rolling bearing systems with integrated adjacent components are used in airplanes and spacecraft construction, resulting in increased performance, safety and reliability and reduced system costs. These parts also withstand extremely low or high temperatures, weightlessness, and high acceleration forces.
Extreme temperatures ranging from - 250 °C to + 500 °C demand extreme temperature resistant materials, from high temperature steels to case hardened materials and nickel superalloys to ceramics.
Corrosion is one of the main causes of bearing failure. We therefore utilise highly corrosion-resistant materials in our bearings, which significantly improves service life and reliability.
Component integration and weight reduction
Today‘s demands are reduced system and life-cycle cost, better performance, increased reliability, simplified installation at less weight. Therefore we develop integrated bearing systems where interfaces are eliminated and surrounding parts become an integral part of the design.
