A couple of weeks ago, India became the first country to land a space probe near the lunar south pole.

Chandrayaan-3, India’s third lunar exploration mission successfully landed on the 23rd of August. Launched on the 14th of July, from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre, this mission’s goals are to demonstrate safe and soft landing on lunar terrain, explore the moon’s surface thanks to a rover and to conduct scientific experiments.

Prior to the landing, the mission sequence was divided in three phases:

  • Earth centric phase
  • Lunar transfer phase
  • Moon centric phase

ADR and our agent Mac Marketing were proud to take part in this mission. Indeed, ball bearings manufactured in our workshop were aboard the launcher, satellite and rover.

This achievement shows that with determination and dedicated teams, we can accomplish anything.

A new tool is available on our website, the Bearing Generator. Allowing you to generate a combination of ball bearings which could potentially suit your needs. By entering your specifications (dimensions), the system will generate a list of ball bearings.

The tool adapts the list according to two parameters: dimensions (mm) and static capacities (N). Once the list is generated, it can be printed. Moreover, you can contact our team of sales engineers by submitting a request, or download our leaflets.
