The ActiGir bearing allows totally free rotation of the bearing in one direction, whereas in the other direction the gyration is controlled by an integrated braking function.
Patent pending: No. EP17155835.6
- Free rotation in one direction
- Controlled deceleration in the other direction
- Reduction of the noise level
A team attentive to your concerns
Mainly in the case of an automatic movement which only winds in one direction, the rotational speed of the oscillating mass can be high when the latter rotates in the opposite direction to winding, and generates sound vibrations that may be felt as excessive.
Our engineers therefore conceived the ActiGir bearing which, with its integrated braking function, significantly reduces the level of noise emitted by the rotor.
