Manufacturing automotive bearing cages optimized for EVs

As vehicle electrification accelerates, so are the requirements for vehicle bearing cages. Since electric motors operate at higher speeds, higher torque and elevated temperatures, materials such as PA66 may not meet the requirements. At the same time, metal or PEEK solutions could add significant costs.

DSM’s portfolio of Stanyl® PA46 materials offer a proven high-performance alternative with excellent strength, stiffness, and thermal performance. In addition, our global application development expertise in bearings can help expedite the design process and enhance performance.
