NSK LCUBE II TAPERED ROLLER BEARINGS FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE TRANSMISSIONS
NSK has unveiled its new LCube II series of TRB for use in EV transmission systems. They are specifically designed to improve efficiency by contributing to better fuel economy and enhance reliability through higher levels of durability and seizure resistance. To improve efficiency and fuel economy in EVs, the industry has seen a shift to using less lubricant and lower viscosity lubricant in transmission systems. As a result, TRB in EV transmissions are being subjected to increasingly severe lubrication conditions, heightening the risk of depleting the lubrication oil film, which in turn promotes surface damage and potential bearing seizure. Higher efficiency transmission systems are key to improving EV fuel economy, so NSK set out to develop a highly reliable TRB capable of overcoming these hurdles. The result is the new LCube II.
As a worldwide strategic partner to the top automobile manufacturers and suppliers, NSK provides solutions that offer more performance while taking up less space. Intelligent steering systems, engine and transmission bearings, bearings for ancillaries – NSK’s products not only ensure more efficient use of fuel, but also increased active and passive safety for automobiles. NSK advises and accompanies customers from the earliest development stage, right through to the start of production. Global Account Managers coordinate the worldwide implementation of locally agreed strategies.
