A new angular contact ball bearing has been developed to prevent the premature failure of ball screws in short stroke applications, particularly those that occur due to false brinelling.

The ZKLF-HC hybrid angular contact thrust ball bearings from Schaeffler use ceramic rolling elements to ensure there is no possibility of metal-to-metal contact. In addition, the limiting speed is increased and there is a threefold increase in grease operating life.

Another ingenious development from Schaeffler which will save industry time and money. To greatly reduce the amount of fretting corrosion caused by the vibration of the unprotected steel-to-steel contact point which eventually leads to bearing failure and machine shutdown is a great step forward. especially in mould production and medical equipment where false brinelling is a particular problem.
