The Ball Roller Innovation
We´ve slimmed the ball down. What is the streamlined ball roller capable of?
The ball roller bearing, a new and promising bearing series, has been developped 100 years after the invention of the ball bearing and 50 years after volume production readiness of the needle roller bearing.
This innovation is based on a simple “slimming plan”, which consists of just removing all areas of the ball not under load. 15 % is cut off on both sides of the ball, producing a “flattened” ball that is, of course, now 30 % narrower. This produces a new rolling element with new technical characteristics and advantages in completely new dimensions.
We’ve developed these advantages in four different directions matched to applications, while always keeping the requirements of our customers in mind.
You require more energy efficiency and improved performance?
You’re thinking of downsizing?
You place your trust in the INA brand?
You should take a closer look at our four new bearing series.
