The article analyses the state of the production process of the friction bearings into the NT compressor. The basis of this article is the production process of the friction bearing, where it was necessary to suggest a fundamental change for the intensification of the production. Significant change mainly concerns production technology, and consequently the design of material and semi-finished product from which the new friction bearing will be produced. An important part of the process is the design of the bearing, the technological process and the following testing and comparison by simulation of strength analyses of the model of the present and the designed bearing. The article compares production costs of the current and designed process also it evaluates investment and returns on the designed technology of production.Keywords: friction bearings, production technology, proposal, model, strength analysis
