Title (EN) LIGHTWEIGHT HYBRID BEARING ASSEMBLY AND A METHOD OF MAKING THEREOF
(FR) ENSEMBLE PALIER HYBRIDE LÉGER ET SON PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A lightweight hybrid bearing assembly (110; 210; 310) and method of making thereof is disclosed. The bearing assembly includes an inner race (124; 224; 324) and an outer race (126; 226; 326) radially spaced from the inner race. One or both of the inner race and the outer race have a convex bearing surface (150, 148; 250, 248; 350). Between the inner race and the outer race, a plurality of ceramic roller elements (128; 228; 328) are received. The ceramic roller elements have a concave bearing surface (146; 246; 346) that engages the convex bearing surface or surfaces. Among other things, this accommodates axial misalignment of the races relative to one another.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un ensemble palier hybride léger (110 ; 210 ; 310) et sur son procédé de fabrication. L'ensemble palier comprend une bague interne (124 ; 224 ; 324) et une bague externe (126 ; 226 ; 326) espacée radialement de la bague interne. L'une de la bague interne et de la bague externe, ou les deux, a une surface de portée convexe (150, 148 ; 250, 248 ; 350). Entre la bague interne et la bague externe sont reçus une pluralité d'éléments roulants en céramique (128 ; 228 ; 328). Les éléments roulants en céramique ont une surface de portée concave (146 ; 246 ; 346) qui est en contact avec la ou les surfaces de portée convexes. Entre autres, ceci permet de s'adapter à un défaut d'alignement axial des bagues l'une par rapport à l'autre.
