The trend toward SUVs continues unabated while at the same time the electrification of the powertrain is progressing. Both factors drive the vehicle weight upwards, which also increases the loads on the plain bearings in the chassis and car exterior. In the interior, on the other hand, electrification poses a completely different challenge: virtually noiseless electric driving places higher NVH requirements on shock absorbers, valves, actuators and the countless bearing points in the interior. Their silent operation is important to the perceived comfort of the occupants. Especially for these applications, KS Gleitlager GmbH now offers a new maintenance-free plain bearing KS P180. By reducing the stick-slip effects, it lowers noise and also has an increased load-bearing capacity under edge-wear conditions.
