Aluminum - Titanium lightweight bearings: half the weight same superior performance
Titanium – the material for motorsport industry: extremely light, exceptionally high resistant, durable. Wherever high stability and less weight are requested 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 therefore must be flexible and high resistant at the same time. The high-quality material is in the same class as ceramic but in direct comparison it is more interesting for the customer because of the favorable price. Due to its characteristics titanium is a constant technology, also in motorsport. But titanium makes high demand on operating 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.
