Automotive supplier Suspa GmbH commissioned roller bearing application consultation for spoiler lifters and accompanying components for the Porsche Opus 911. Requirements were not only specified with regard to the ambient temperature, but the drive module’s performance had to be able to withstand forces at top speed. Lightweight construction was also a particularly important point. A significant amount of thought was put into every single gram for the sports car manufacturer.


A total of 68 roller bearings of different types are installed per glider wing, each of which performs an important control function.

Thin-section bearings are great for solving problems in applications where there is little installation space, but only if they are selected and used professionally.

This allows typical problems to be avoided from the outset, and the customer benefits from consistently high quality standards, regardless of whether they’re in the standard or premium segments.

Special for high speeds

Deep groove ball bearings with "electric motor quality" – this is how many providers market their products. Upon closer inspection, the term does not actually mean much since there are no precisely formulated, cross-manufacturer criteria for it. The comprehensive features of Findling Wälzlager’s Xspeed deep-groove ball bearing illustrate which properties are actually important and that a "noise test" is not enough.
