Ceramic Materials in Rolling Contact Bearings: Silicon Nitride for Increased Applications

The rolling contact fatigue of silicon nitride is considerably stronger than that of steel. This makes hybrid bearings a preferred bearing, especially for machine tool spindle bearings, and for a lot of applications, as they show significantly better performance: higher spindle speed, reduced vibration level of the spindle, cooler spindle operation, improved spindle run-out, simplified construction of spindle system, longer spindle life and lower spindle repair cost.
