Ball bearings are essential components in various mechanical systems, designed for their high hardness to ensure wear resistance and the ability to withstand high contact stresses. For many years, this design philosophy served well as long as traditional bearing configurations with predominantly compressive stresses were prevalent. Stress corrosion cracking (SCC) was not a significant concern in such setups. However, as the industry continues to evolve towards more efficient and lightweight integrated solutions, where bearings are [...]
