Lower bearing friction improves its efficiency and delivers more operating cost reductions.
- Low friction rolling elements of airframe bearings reduce control loads and therefore structure weight.
- Low friction rolling elements of aeroengine bearings improve engine efficiency and thus deliver more power with less energy.
SKF Aerospace has developed with its customers a full range of solutions which can lower bearing friction.
