Rolling Bearing Cages feature Diamond-like Carbon coating.

Rolling Bearing Cages feature Diamond-like Carbon coating.

Rolling bearing cages with DLC (Diamond-like Carbon) coating improve performance of radial cylindrical roller bearings and radial deep groove ball bearings- in harsh operating conditions. Amorphous DLC coating on steel cages increases resistance to breakage and lowers coefficient of friction between rolling bearing shoulders and cage, which helps prevent premature wear or abrasion. Depending on...
