Frictional torque reduced
17 January 2014
Precision bearing manufacturer Schaeffler has extended its range of high performance, premium quality, X-life tapered roller bearings.
The new X-life FAG tapered roller bearings are now available in sizes up to 635mm outside diameter (OD). This means that Schaeffler can now offer customers the widest range of high performance tapered roller bearings on the market.
FAG tapered roller bearings in X-life quality can achieve a reduction in frictional torque of up to 50% compared to conventional tapered roller bearings. The dynamic load rating (load carrying capacity) of the X-life bearing has increased by 20%, with a resulting minimum 70% improvement in the basic nominal operating life of the bearing.
