Up in the Air and
Beyond into Spherical Heights – Modern Ball Bearings for Aviation and Space by GRW

Satellites, aircraft and testing devices: All rely on precise and reliable technologies that guarantee a flawless and safe operation in extreme heights or outer space. In all these areas, the GRW ball bearings for aviation and space make remarkable contributions.

Sophisticated Multi-Talents for Safe Application on the Ground and at Great Heights

Ball bearing solutions for the aviation and space industry are used in many applications and technologies:

  • Air circulation systems
  • Electronic engine-powered control units
  • Fuel supply
  • Air-conditioning
  • Satellite switching elements
  • Navigation tools
  • Cargo
  • Supply stations
  • Antenna and sun protection systems
  • Pressure-regulating systems
  • Measuring and controlling systems

Promising Ball Bearing Solutions with Significant Future Potential

In 1997, as well as in 2003 and 2020, our high-quality ball bearings for aviation and space were parts of the power modules of the NASA Mars missions. For such scientifically important expeditions, stable constructions and constant controls are essential – and begin right in here in the manufacturing stages. When you choose to use ball bearings made by GRW, you profit from the following advantages:

  • More than 300 different lubrications (some with MIL specification) for temperatures ranging from -454°F (-270°C) to +842°F (+450°C)
  • vacuum suitable lubrications with gas evolution rates
  • various dry lubrications and coatings
  • control via highly sensitive noise and vibration test stands
  • documentation of the preload, if necessary, according to the “broken-curve-method”
  • constant development and re-evaluation of materials and testing methods
