The seal friction was reduced by narrowing the seal lip by 10% and lengthening it by 70%, compared to conventional bearings
The seal lip shape was improved based on computer analysis; the new shape improves lip-following and stabilises the contact pressure along the edge.
Seal friction reduced by up to 50% compared to the old TM-seal design and total bearing friction reduction of around 10%.
Same durability as the replaced TM-bearings by preventing the ingress of contaminants to the transmission oil in the bearing. The bearing life is improved by 5 times in comparison to open bearings.
