Manual transmissions must adequately meet driver expectations of control by conveying a smooth, precise and crisp feeling. Transmissions must also be compact, lightweight, and be able to deliver excellent fuel efficiency for the increased number of gears that are appearing in new vehicles.
The bearings and synchronized parts created by NSK play a key role in supporting the future of manual transmissions with their unsurpassed reliability and capability developed with tribology technology.
New bearing helps prevent surface flaking
New Tapered Roller Bearing with plastic cage: dedicated to the automotive transmission market and enables a 20% friction reduction compared with conventional products using a steel cage.
The new TM-seal for Transmisson bearings reduces friction and inhibts the ingress of gear dust and other contaminants.
Long life has been achieved by specially designed seals for transmissions.
The seals prevent ingress of contaminants in the oil. Size reductions from standard open type bearings can be achieved.
Long life Sealed-Clean bearings with retainer plate allow an optimal assembly in the vehicle transmission. A perfect alignment between the plate holes & the gearbox housing is ensured, as they are available in various shapes & number of holes.
High capacity cylindrical roller bearings for radial load, as well as axial load from gear meshing.
Reduced weight and costs have been achieved by using plastic cages with superior oil and heat resistance.
Self-centering clutch release bearings with reduced weight and costs have been achieved by reducing the number of parts combined with press technology.
