Wheel bearings are designed to minimize the friction produced by the rotation of the wheels. Wheel bearings guide and support the axles and shafts.
Wheel Bearings are part of the chassis, guide the wheels and absorb axial and radial forces. They are also designed and dimensioned to withstand high loads and high levels of environmental stress. This Wheel Bearings also called as Hub unit bearings comprised of bearing rings, rolling elements, and cages, similar to general-purpose rolling bearings.
Hub unit is classified as the 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation hub unit varies according to the combinations of the bearings and their peripheral components.
