– 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.
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.
