Freedom from maintenance is achieved by permanent lubrication and the use of durable grease. A reduction in the axle length provides protection against axial movement and incorrect wheel alignment.
Special steel is used for the wheel bearing units. This is subjected to special hardening and tempering to ensure a long functionality of the bearings.
Construction of wheel bearings:
- Inner bearing, facing toward the shaft journal
- Outer bearing
- Mounting plate
- Lock ring
- DT Spare Parts marking
