Engine bearings

Engine plain bearings are components that determine the function and service life of combustion engines. They are used to support crankshafts and camshafts, minimize the friction generated during operation and protect the engine from damage and failure. By constantly developing new bearing designs, Miba ensures that modern engines deliver efficient and ecologically compatible top performance even under extreme conditions.
