2 stroke Saab Alloy Bearing Cages

November 3, 2012

I have been extremely remiss in not updating this blog for quite some time. Sheer laziness, and hopefully this post will be the first of many more.

On the left below is an image of a bearing cage we supplied for use in old Saabs. The work was done on a CNC machine, using the supplied cage on the right as a pattern. There was no drawing. The customer supplied a few of the roller bearings for measurement. The alloy is a very tough one, and it was interesting to learn that it was first developed by Japanese aircraft manufacturers doing WWII. We were able to locate that here, imported from a German manufacturer.
