NSK成功开发“高性能圆锥滚子轮毂轴承单元”

NSK成功开发“高性能圆锥滚子轮毂轴承单元”(0)

This article, press release or announcement is translated from BearingNEWS (www.bearing-news.com) publications or from China Bearing Commercial Community (CBCC) sources.  日本精工株式会社(以下简称NSK)成功开发了皮卡、大型SUV、商用车用“高性能圆锥滚子轮毂轴承单元* 1”。该产品通过集成化以及低摩擦技术的应用,有助于提高汽车的可靠性并降低油耗。 NSK预计到2023年该产品的销售额达到50亿日元。 开发背景 圆锥滚子轮毂轴承单元的寿命及刚性均优于同等尺寸下的球轴承寿命,因此被广泛应用于皮卡,大型SUV和商用车辆。但是,球轴承已经发展到第3代(HUB主轴一体化)并且已被广泛应用,与之相比,大多数圆锥滚子轴承因受到生产制约而使用两个单列轴承,或者仅到第1代和第2代的应用为止。因此,整车厂以及市场上的轮毂轴承在更换时需要组装主轴,存在可能由于压装不良和预紧力过度或不足而导致诸如异响等市场问题的产生。由此,第2.5代(已安装主轴)和第3代产品的需求日渐增加。 此外,由于各国的环保法规和燃油效率标准日渐苛刻,因此对经济型燃油的研发也扩大至乘用车领域以外的车辆,因此减小圆锥滚子轮毂轴承单元的摩擦成为一个重要课题。 本产品特点 1. 通过单元化提高可靠性 NSK在现存第2代圆锥滚子轮毂轴承单元的基础上开发出已预先安装HUB主轴的第2.5代产品。并且,将HUB主轴与内圈进行一体化的第3代产品也正在开发中。 NSK通过实施HUB主轴预装和预压控制,可以防止压装不当以及拧紧力矩过大或不足等不良情况的产生,有助于提高产品在市场上的可靠性。 2. 低摩擦技术的应用 NSK通过乘用车球轴承的研发和生产,在润滑脂,密封圈以及高密封性端盖方面累积了成熟的技术。通过以上技术,第2.5代产品已实现约20%至35%的摩擦力矩降低(与第2代相比)。 并且,第3代产品可以进一步低减约10%的摩擦。 产品效果 本产品作为针对皮卡、大型SUV和商用车的轮毂轴承,通过低摩擦技术以及集成化技术的应用,可为提高汽车可靠性和降低油耗做出贡献。
