The use of the unit composed principle in the planning of the E-Type series of bearings was a far-reaching accomplishment. The different combinations of slide bearings are, in case of need, assembled from stock components and sub-assemblies.

This ensures that there is the quickest possible delivery of spare parts from the Hannover Works.

Interchangeability of the parts is guaranteed and a shell with plain shoulders, for example, can be replaced if necessary by one with integral taper land thrust faces.
