The heavy loads and requirement for lower frictional losses in differentials present conflicting challenges. NSK’s unique heat treatments for longer service life, and tapered roller bearings with plastic cage for 20% friction reduction, help to meet these needs.
For propeller shafts NSK produces needle roller bearings and yokes for the universal joints. NSK also produces high performance sealed bearing units for the centre support of propeller shafts and FF drive shafts.
