Titanium – is the material for aerospace industry: extremely light, exceptionally resistant, and durable. Wherever high stability and less weight are required this material is the first choice. That is why Carl Hirschmann uses titanium for the inner rings of their newest generation of spherical bearings. It transmits forces and movement, and must be flexible and highly resistant at the same time. This high-quality material is in the same league as ceramic, but at a much more affordable price. With these characteristics titanium is a constant in aerospace technology. But titanium is in high demand, and cold forming is difficult. This is the reason why Carl Hirschmann relies on a material combination and uses aluminum for the outer part of their lightweight spherical bearings.
