Eye Spyraflo, a look at bearing applications…. Episode 24: The magnificent Mercedes Benz has super Spyraflo keeping a lid on things

The Mercedes Benz Maybach, thought by many to be the World’s most luxurious Saloon car, is manufactured by Daimler Chrysler who needed something special for the centre console lid where compactness and quality was the design criteria.

The answer from Spyraflo was to supply them with self-clinching/self-aligning Delrin bearings for use in this prestigious vehicle some consider the most elegant and costly saloon car in the world. Through its German distributor, they are providing FSD-2M bearings for installation in the vehicle’s centre console. The 2mm bearings are securely installed into the sheet-steel frame that forms the console latch. They lend themselves perfectly to the Maybach application, taking up very little space, while the self-aligning capability ensures the mechanism works as flawlessly as an owner of such a magnificent car would expect.

In the Maybach manufacturing facility in Sindelfingen, Germany, over 300 highly skilled Daimler Chrysler craftsmen produce about five Maybachs each day. At least four weeks of masterful craftsmanship is required to produce a single vehicle, each one unique and taking on the character and personality of its individual owner. Prices for the wonderful Maybach can reach £200,000, priced to compare with other top-of-the-range cars the Bentley and Rolls Royce.

Micromech is the UK and Eire distributor of these clever bearings, if you would like more information about them or perhaps a sample, then contact Alisia Cherry on 01376 333333 or email alisia@micromech.co.uk
