CCTY Bearing Co.: Advancing High-Performance Bearing Development with SolidWorks Solutions

CCTY Bearing designs and manufactures high-performance bearings and assemblies. The company’s extensive product line ranges from traditional bearing products—such as spherical plain bearings, radial ball bearings, tie rods, ball joints, and self-lubricating bushings—to innovative bearing designs like its patent-pending Square Ball Universal Joint™ (U-joint) assembly.

Using SOLIDWORKS 3D design and simulation solutions, CCTY Bearing not only realized substantial reductions in development and delivery lead-times, the company also created its patent-pending Square Ball Universal Joint. The innovative design allows for the smooth transfer of high torque while making assembly easier, by reducing the number of U-joint components from approximately 115 to six.
