The latest innovation by Carl Hirschmann: rolled-in, heavy-duty spher­i­cal bear­ings di­rectly in­te­grated into CFRP com­po­nents. This de­vel­op­ment is a mile­stone es­pe­cially for the sport of auto racing, where weight re­duc­tion is an im­por­tant fac­tor. The Al2 light­weight bear­ings can be de­liv­ered as sealed bear­ings, and are also perfect for sports car applications, such as the GT series. 

Ad­van­tages of Al2 light­weight bear­ings

  • low weight (weight reduction of about 70% compared to standard units)
  • resists extreme tensile and compressive loads
  • long life and robustness
  • less complex manufacturing processes, that is considerably less expense for user
  • service: worn bearings are professionally renewed

Examples of use

  • Tie Rods
  • Wish­bones
  • Rods
  • Steer­ing rod for strut con­nec­tion
