ICOS for power tools
The bearing needs to be protected against contaminants e.g. gearbox oil. This has led to the development of an integrated unit combining the bearing and the required sealing.
The advantages of this unit includes:
- integration of two functions in one unit
- reduction in handling and logistics (one unit instead of two components)
- the seal-bearing counter face is optimized by design
- mounting is simplified
- the required space (width) is reduced (one unit compared with two components)
- the need for expensive machining to provide a seal counter face on the shaft is eliminated.
