The focus of emissions legislation has now expanded to include carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases with challenging targets set for the total efficiency of complete engine-powered systems. While cranktrain bearings are not the biggest contributor to engine friction, their effects need to be incorporated into efforts to minimise the environmental impact of combustion engines. Bearing specialist Miba Gleitlager has undertaken research to realise the potentials offered.
