King Bearings Launches Advanced Bearing Materials at AAPEX 2014

King Engine Bearings will present its new advanced bearing materials at the 2014 AAPEX show November 4-7 in Las Vegas. The needs of modern engines combined with today’s environmental restrictions has led King to develop new advanced bearing materials which can withstand greater load than traditional materials while remaining environmentally friendly.

The needs of modern engines combined with today’s environmental restrictions has led King to develop new advanced bearing materials which can withstand greater load than traditional materials while remaining environmentally friendly.

King’s R&D unit, the TechLab, has been developing a variety of leaded and lead free materials to provide high load capacity while meeting all environmental requirements. The first tri-metal lead free material, SV, is a silver-based overlay material containing solid lubricant additives. Silver is being offered exclusively to the aftermarket by King and is considered a cost effective sputter replacement. It provides identical features such as load capacity and conformability as the previous sputter material while offering a cost effective alternative.

“We saw a need to develop a solution for new highly loaded engines.” Said Limor N. DePetro, King marketing & sales director. “Our new strengthened bearings are both environmentally responsible and also can withstand extreme loads.”

King will also display its new XP Race Bearings that feature a proprietary pMax Black tri-metal composition, which combined with unique geometric features, results in a 24 percent load capacity increase over standard race bearings. King will also introduce its sputter bearings line and a strengthened aluminum based material.

You can visit King Engine Bearings at the AAPEX show in booth #2454 at the Sands Expo Center. For more information, visit www.kingbearings.com.
