Low-friction, lightweight, and maintenance-free
We have developed numerous engine solutions In cooperation with our customers' engine design specialists. With the development of the cage-guided INA needle roller bearing, a complete economic machine element for high-speed shafts was available as early as 1949. Later, the first cam followers with cam rollers were put into volume production. Rolling bearings considerably reduce friction in the valve train.
We help our customers design hydraulic valve lash adjustment elements with the correct mating materials in order to create the most cost-effective solution. The adjustment elements ensure that the valve lash always remains constant. The combustion process is ideal and the optimal operating state of the engine remains unchanged regardless of the varying operating conditions. The result: a reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
INA and FAG components also help reconcile individual mobility with economy and ecology in numerous other motorcycle applications.
