Bearings for brakes

Figure: Knorr-Bremse

Low weight, minimal space requirements, smooth running and reliability are all requirements of modern braking systems in rail vehicles.

This is where the advantages of needle roller bearings, drawn cup needle roller bearings with closed ends, thrust needle bearings manufactured by INA, and drawn cup roller clutches manufactured by Schaeffler Group Industrial come into their own and make advanced developments possible.
