SPECIAL WHEEL HUB BEARINGS
At Supra, R&D activity can be seen in development of the Hub units, bearings mainly focusing on commercial vehicles, tow units, buses and trucks. These new compact bearings comprising of two inner units in a single external housing are complemented by high performance grease and top quality seals to ensure adequate sealing throughout its working life.
The major advantages of these Special Hub units are:-
– Reduction in the number of components, and therefore the assembly time.
– Reduction in the space required for the bearings, and consequently its weight.
– Reduced maintenance as these units come pre-greased and sealed.
– Reduced handling and therefore reduces chances of dust and impurities reaching the insides of the vehicle or the units.
