What is special about this new bearing is its dimensions. With a load transfer capacity of approximately 50 to 150 kN, the bearing can handle large loads.
Two separate bearing elements are braced against each other over a rod. Inside, the conical bearing has a large rubber pad, which provides good lateral stability due to its specially designed contour.
Thanks to a high spring stiffness, the conical bearing reduces swaying of the amphibious vehicle.
