ThinKing October – Material selection in lightweight aluminum-titanium bearings reduces weight by half while maintaining full performance potential

06.10.2016

 

Reducing the weight of cars can make them more fun to drive and increase their performance dynamics while keeping fuel and material consumption low. The newest generation of spherical bearings manufactured by HIRSCHMANN SPERICAL BEARINGS is making its own significant contribution to this trend: aluminum-titanium low-weight bearings which perform just as well as the normally used standard bearings, but with only half the weight – and at a reasonable price.

The Development Agency for Lightweighting Baden-Wuerttemberg is proud to present this innovation as its October ThinKing. The Leichtbau BW GmbH hands out this distinction each month to feature impressive products and innovations in the lightweighting sector in Baden-Wuerttemberg.
