myonic precision bearings make an important contribution to the energy transition

Even in the production of our miniature ball bearings, we attach great importance to the careful use of increasingly scarce resources. For example, the electricity required to manufacture our products already comes exclusively from renewable energy sources.

We take into account certifications and environmental standards that confirm the sustainability and environmental friendliness of the materials and manufacturing processes used.

When developing and designing our precision ball bearings, we pay particular attention to energy efficiency: for example, ball bearings can have special designs or coatings that reduce frictional resistance, resulting in reduced energy consumption.

This can be particularly advantageous in applications such as flywheel energy storage systems, electric vehicles or energy recovery systems.

Flywheel energy storage

Flywheel energy storage systems are systems that store kinetic energy in rotating flywheels and can release this energy again when required. They are used to store energy in various applications, including power supply, transport and industry, to compensate for temporary energy shortages or to store renewable energy.

Ball bearings are used in flywheel energy storage systems to enable the low-friction and efficient rotation of the flywheel – usually under vacuum. The selection of the right ball bearings for flywheel energy storage systems depends on the specific requirements of the application, including speed, load capacity, operating conditions and lifetime requirements.

Hydrogen applications

Ball bearings for hydrogen applications are specially developed to meet the requirements and challenges of using hydrogen as a medium. Hydrogen is the lightest of the elements and has some unique properties that need to be taken into account when choosing the right ball bearings.

Such bearing systems are used in various areas, including hydrogen production, storage, transport, and in fuel cell technology. Other major factors as play here are corrosion resistance, material selection, lubrication and choosing the correct type of seal.
