Deep groove ball bearings
04 April 2017
Schaeffler is significantly expanding its standard rolling bearing business by investing in new production and logistics capacities for its FAG Generation C deep groove ball bearings.
The high quality of the balls and a noise-optimised cage enable Generation C bearings to run at significantly reduced noise levels compared to conventional deep groove ball bearings. Also, optimised osculation reduces friction.
These characteristics can be attributed to numerous improvements to raceway parameters in terms of roundness, waviness, roughness and tighter manufacturing tolerances. Reduced friction also means lower energy costs during operation.
