Airplane prototype

Main criteria for the application

Lower manufacturing costs

Increase in service life

In the conception phase of the EQUATOR, all traditional metallic ball bearings and plain bearings in the entire aircraft system were replaced by corrosion-resistant, lightning-resistant and insulated plastic plain bearings. Depending on the size of the aircraft, around 360 bearing points and guide systems from igus® are used.
