„In chassis applications we already since decades cooperate successfully with HIRSCHMANN. We estimate the constantly high quality of their products and the reliability of the company and therefore use only HIRSCHMANN bearings for our CTR cars”, underlines Alois Ruf, owner of the manufactory in Pfaffenhausen.

The exclusive manufacturer of race cars purchases not only single components but also complete units for front and rear suspension from Carl Hirschmann. A roller staking tool designed by Carl Hirschmann helps RUF Automobile GmbH to roll in the bearings by themselves. In this process the force affecting on the bearing is with 700N significantly less than caulking force of 70kN. With the help of three rolls force is applied all over and for a longer period. The result is a bearing position of higher quality and longer lifetime.
