Friction reduction is necessary in order to decrease engine emissions, so bearing friction needs to be reduced but with the constraint that low friction solutions should not affect bearing reliability. To meet this target of low friction and high reliability bearings, several technical solutions are reviewed. Particular attention is paid to evaluating friction reduction performance for each solution. Damage risks relating to customer uses are also presented in order to check that these risks are negligible with low friction solutions. View Full-Text
