Innovative solutions for preventing white etching cracks (WEC)
White etching cracks (WEC) are structural changes in the material that form below the surface of the bearing. As a result, the inner or outer ring may eventually crack and cause the affected bearing to prematurely fail. Schaeffler has comprehensive testing facilities for creating white etching cracks, analyzing the causes and developing solution concepts for reducing the risk of WEC.
