14.8.8.3. Who makes bearings

GENERAL INFORMATION

Complexity of all circle of the problems connected with creation of high-quality automobile bearings of sliding, led to that their production gradually passed to specialized firms. Abroad many their such firms at the same time let out also other details of engines, and deliveries go both on conveyors of automobile works, and in spare parts. Some firms such are a part of known multinational production and commercial and industrial corporations. From world manufacturers of bearings for engines it should be noted firms Kolbenschmidt (KS), Glyco, TRW, Sealed Power, Glacier, Clevite, Bimet first of all. In recent years bearings started to do and such firms – "coryphaeuses", as Mahle and Goetze. Among "young" it is necessary to mention the specialized firm King (Israel) which has begun release of bearings in the early eighties.

The majority of the listed producers issues the huge nomenclature of bearings and delivers the production in the spare part everywhere, including on our market (through dealers or the wholesale trading companies). Generally certainly, it is bearings for foreign engines – European, Japanese and American.

It is possible to find loose leaves in sale both standard, and the various repair sizes (as a rule, no more than 0,75 mm) on the majority of the widespread Audi Volkswagen models, BMW, "Mercedes", "Ford", "Opel", "Fiat", "Toyota", "Nissan", "Mitsubishi", "Mazda" etc. On less widespread models, and also in need of purchase of loose leaves of the bigger repair size usually it is necessary to make out the order and to wait on the average for 5-10 days (at different trading companies these terms are various).

Quality of such production usually does not cause doubts neither on geometry, nor on materials. Though, if there is a choice and doubts in what firm manufacturer to prefer, it is necessary to mean the following. Such firms as, for example, Kolbenschmidt, Glyco, Glacier are one of main suppliers of mass production. Upon purchase of their products it is possible even to receive the same loose leaves that stood on the engine "since the birth". The difference will be only in absence on new details of an emblem of firm manufacturer of the car. By the way, search "native" (or so-called original) loose leaves of the repair sizes can appear problematic. Not all automobile firms deliver repair loose leaves in the spare part and the price of loose leaves in "original" packing is, as a rule, much higher, than directly from their producer.

Loose leaves of other, less eminent firms are usually cheaper, though on quality to find differences difficultly. Moreover, if there is a choice, here it is possible to try to consider and car service conditions. So, rather cheap loose leaves, strangely enough, resist to bad quality oils and маслофильтрам, "walking" on our shops and the markets, than more expensive stalebronzobabbitovy slightly better. It practice of use under repair steel-aluminum loose leaves of King firm instead of the regular bronzobabbitovy, in particular, showed – such replacement does not put a damage of reliability of engines, but allows to save considerably.

Some of the listed firms issue loose leaves and for our cars. In our market it is already possible to find these products for engines VAZ of production of Clevite, Bimet and Glacier firms. Certainly, they it is notable more expensively than the domestic. However to save on loose leaves at repair of domestic motors it is not necessary. Comparison with import production domestic usually does not maintain. Deviations on thickness at our some commodity copies reach 25–30 microns instead of 8 microns regulated by the admission. As a result after a zazhatiya a cover внутрення the surface of the bearing gets the wrong form at which, for example, the gap in 0,07–0,09 mm in one section of the bearing can even pass to a tightness in other.
