Schaeffler and NCTE Have Agreed Cooperation in the Bike and E-bike Market
Schaeffler has selected NCTE as a technology partner for torque sensor technology and and will exclusively offer a joint portfolio from the two companies covering sensor bearing products for the bike and e-bike market.

This cooperation between Schaeffler and the sensor technology supplier NCTE results in a unequaled comprehensive portfolio of mechatronic components for the bike and e-bike market. This includes volume products such as torque sensor inner bearings as well as highly integrated customer solutions such as torque sensors for mid-mounted motors. The sensors measure the cadence frequency or, in a combined form, the cadence frequency together with torque using non-contact, magnetostrictive metrology. This product portfolio is represented exclusively worldwide by Schaeffler as part of its cooperation with NCTE. Schaeffler develops and has for several years supplied mechatronic volume components for e-bike drives and numerous precision components for bikes - not only bottom brackets but also for example bearing solutions for hubs, headset bearings and seals for gear hubs.

Outstanding technology and short lead times
The partners to this cooperation based their production on the experience of Schaeffler on flexible manufacturing structures in the worldwide production of NCTE AG in Munich with its short lead times.

Through this cooperation, Schaeffler emphasizes once again its commitment to using premium technologies for the development of innovative solutions for the mobility of the future. The objective is to pursue systematic development of Schaeffler technologies for electric mobility and especially for e-bikes.
