Conserving the earth, the CW bearing way


Conserving the earth, the CW bearing way

The well-known bearing manufacturer CW Bearing has declared a goal to conserve the earth’s resources and reduce their negative environmental impact they currently have.

For almost 40 years, CW has specialised in the development and manufacture of a wide variety of high-quality ball bearings. This is due to their customised solutions and application-specific advice in areas such as calculation and development, FE simulation, test stands, laboratories, technical training, and in-house exhibitions.

In Hamburg, the engineering department has the most important test benches, as well as laboratory equipment for subsequent tests, which is positioned for complex specifications. Whereas, the logistics centre controls and monitors the entire supply chain from the production sites in North America and Asia to the shelves of European customers. A modern high-bay, 5,300 sq metre warehouse is available for stocking and serving these customers. Once again, the respective customer requirements are decisive ‑ both for incoming goods inspection and for shipping. CW are always happy to use environmentally friendly, reusable containers.

CW’s declared goal is to conserve the earth’s resources and reduce negative environmental impacts. To achieve this goal, company-wide environmental standards such as DIN EN ISO 14001 have been implemented. CW also contributes to increasing energy efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions with its products and solutions. For its plants, CW has set the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 90% by 2040 by becoming more energy efficient, generating their own renewable energy, switching to zero-emission transport options, recycling materials, and investing in carbon storage projects. The consistent implementation of these packages of measures has already begun. For example, three of the six factories have installed photovoltaic systems to generate renewable energy.

In terms of production CW is widely spread, including the “rolling bearing capital” Schweinfurt as a location. In the field of technology, CW supplies well-known OEMs and medium sized companies. A growing number of trading partners enables CW to serve the needs of smaller OEMs and the aftermarket throughout Europe. In the high-volume business, CW counts the well-known automotive OEMs and tier-1 suppliers as well as, many other sub-suppliers among its customers. In addition, CW’s product portfolio includes other bearing types, special bearing components as well as, customised ball screws and worm shafts.

Thanks to the tech centre of the Cixing Group, the product range and manufacturing capacity are constantly growing. As a matter of principle, CW follows a “0-defect policy” — for every single one of its 600 million rolling bearings per year. Production only takes place in plants that are 100% part of the Cixing Group and are certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001 and IATF 16949.

CW Bearings are getting things moving and on the road to a sustainable future. In particular, application areas such as e-mobility and robotics can look forward to more exciting solutions in the near future.
