Engine Shafts Supported by Rolling Bearings

Less Friction inside the Engine

Schaeffler develops innovative solutions for rolling bearing supports in crankshafts, camshafts and balancer shafts that offer considerable potential for reducing power losses in the engine, and, therefore, improved fuel economy and lower emissions. Balancer shafts with rolling bearing supports, for example, generate approximately 50 % less friction compared with shafts supported by plain bearings. Schaeffler has also succeeded in developing an optimized design for balancer shafts that is up to 40 % lighter with no performance losses.
