SNR is a car bearing brand known in the whole world. At present, it belongs to the NTN-SNR group that is the European office of the Japanese NTN Corporation. SNR accounts for 30% of the total bearing production in Europe.

SNR Background

The history of the SNR brand dates back to 1916 when the bearing plant was established in Annecy, France. The founder of the company was Jacques Schmidt, a blacksmith from Switzerland. In the beginning the company’s products were known under the brand name SRO. Only in 1946 when the company was acquired by the French group Renault the components started being made under the brand SNR (Société Nouvelle de Roulements). By 1956 the plant had begun to work to full capacity: every day 42000 bearings came off the assembly lines.

At present, the company’s production centres are located worldwide: in France, Germany, Brazil, Romania, China, the USA, Italy and Japan. Since 2008, it has been a part of the NTN-SNR group. Since 2010, the common venture has had the name NTN-SNR Roulements. The company is the largest European supplier of original bearings for the assembly lines of car makers, and it also manufactures car parts for aftermarket.

SNR Car parts:

  1. Hub bearings. This category consists of several series:
    • Single row. They are considered to be bearings of the zero generation. They can be tapered and roller-type. In mass production they are use less and less frequently as they require some adjustment, lubrication and outer seal installation.
    • HUB-I. Feature simple installation, do not require using any additional tools for tensioning. As rolling elements in the construction both balls and rollers can be used. In order to protect the inner elements from dirt and prevent lubricant from leaking out, seals can be optionally used.
    • HUB-II. These are fitted with a bore flange for attaching the bearing to a brake disc or wheel hub, allowing to reduce the size of the hub assembly. As a rule, in the construction of these components balls are used and the hub itself is made in the form of a solid cartridge and therefore is well protected from the impact of the environment.
    • HUB-III. They are fitted with two bore flanges to be attached both to a brake disc and to a wheel hub. High resistance to contamination. Feature easy mounting, centring and maintenance. HUB series bearings of all the three generations can be integrated with ASB sensors – these are tiny sensors that measure the wheel speed and send the data to control units of the corresponding systems.
    • HUB-IV. Differs from the previous series – HUB-III–in having installed CVUJ. Being lighter and more compact, they have a more rigid design. One of the advantages is their high serviceability.
  2. Gearbox bearings. Go through thermal and chemical processing that increases their resistance to abrasive particle, lubrication impact and peak load impacts. Besides, high quality transmission seals are also produced under the brand SNR.
