Cut emissions by cutting weight
SKF product development engineer Paolo Re and his SKF team have a solution; the SKF Low Weight Hub Bearing Unit. By minimizing the use of steel and replacing it with light alloy, weight is cut by almost one third without compromising performance or bearing life.
This innovative hub bearing unit suits premium cars equally well as light trucks and electric vehicles. The bottom line is reduced emissions and fuel consumption. This solution may also help automotive manufacturers avoid CO2 fees. It’s another great example of knowledge engineering at work.
