Aerospace Titanium Spherical plain bearing , an SKF Beyond Zero solution

The titanium spherical plain bearings are used for different functions within the aircraft:
-Landing gear attachment
-Pylon to wing attachment
-Flight control
The Aerospace titanium spherical plain bearing is categorized as a “Designed for environment” solution as its design properties reduce the weight and impact aircraft CO2 emission.

Titanium spherical bearing compared to conventional steel/copper beryllium one is inherently eco-friendly, as the manufacturing process uses less of hazardous elements Bronze and chromium.
The product will bring positive environmental impact and potential CO2 savings by :
- Reducing use of hazardous elements Bronze and chromium.
- CO2 savings
