Schaeffler’s TriFinity wheel bearing offers significantly higher stiffness and longer service life in comparison to conventional two-row ball bearings while offering higher stiffness and significantly lower friction in comparison to conventional two-row tapered roller bearings.
Its ingenious design makes it possible to accommodate multiple design solutions depending on the needs of the application whether that be high axle loads, reduced friction or improved stiffness.
The design can be implemented under 3 design scenarios:
Solution #1: Tapered roller bearing replacement
- Same package dimensions
- Up to 53% lower friction
- Improved stiffness
Solution #2: Increased capacity density
- High stiffness / 33% less deflection
- Up to 24% more load capacity
Solution #3: Downsizing
- Same capacity as standard design – but in a smaller package
- Up to 19% less friction
