– Designed for A/C clutches in automotive and over-the-road truck applications –

Plymouth, MI… C&U Americas, LLC, the North American subsidiary of the C&U Group, one of the world’s top 10 bearing manufacturers and China’s largest bearing producer, offers world-class quality magnetic clutch bearings for use in air conditioning clutches for automotive and over-the-road truck applications. The bearings are precision built to the highest quality standards, and are more affordably priced than most competitive bearings.

CU Magnetic Clutch Bearing

Specifically designed to deliver key product performance features, C&U magnetic clutch bearings incorporate an angular contact raceway design that handles both radial and axial loads while promoting stiffness within the application – all in a compact package. All bearing configurations feature superfinished, dual outer and inner ring raceways that are inclined at an angle to the bearing axis. This design allows for application in a smaller envelope, which can be more functional and cost effective than utilizing a standard double row bearing or putting two bearings together.

C&U magnetic clutch bearings are available with a variety of design features including multiple sealing and lubrication options as well as nylon cages to promote longer lubrication life. C&U Americas’ use of proprietary bearing steel also results in increased material fatigue life, which provides a key advantage for thin-section bearings.

The wide range of design variations make C&U magnetic clutch bearings ideal for use in various automotive applications including magnetic clutches, fan brackets, alternators, and idlers/tensioners. Other industrial applications include electric motors, blowers, water pumps, centrifugal pumps, compressors, and more.

C&U Americas offers a full line of bearing types and styles for use in original equipment manufacturing, aftermarket replacement, and MRO operations. The C&U portfolio includes over 30,000 types of bearings in a wide range of specifications and sizes ranging from 1.5mm ID to 4000mm OD.
