NKE’s solid brass bearing cages feature an improved design. Their reduced mass helps the cages cut the rolling bearings’ energy absorption and it prevents sliding friction. The company says that it has cut cage mass by nearly onefi fth compared to the previous design without affecting roller guidance accuracy.

This improved design will be gradually phased in for all of the company’s standard bearings with solid brass cages.
