Our NMB ABWTE Series Spherical Plain Bearings are an ultra high performance, stainless steel, extra wide series bearing.
The car applications that ABWTE5 Spherical Plain Bearings are directly used for:
– Formula 1
– LMP (LeMans Prototype)
– WRC (World Rally Championship)
– WRX (World Rally Cross)
It can be used for other classes of Race cars to improve suspension and ultimately, track time.
It’s adaptable construction (some sizes available in metric series) with a special reinforced, enriched PTFE fabric liner sliding surface; enables higher radial load capabilities, longer life and lower friction under load than comparably sized bearings. The E-Type series also offers higher operating temperatures (180°C compared to 120°C on standard items) making the E-Type range the ultimate imperial series Spherical Plain Bearing for high end Motorsport and Racing applications.
