Operational costs are reduced

Operational costs are reduced
A new range of spherical roller bearings is now available that offers up to 60 per cent longer service life, higher limiting speeds, increased load ratings and lower energy consumption, resulting in reduced operating costs. Schaeffler Group's FAG E1 spherical roller bearings with outside diameters larger than 320mm are now available in X-life premium quality versions, providing significantly improved bearing performance.

By converting the standard FAG E1 spherical roller bearings to X-life quality, customers benefit from a 15% increase in load ratings, 50% higher limiting running speeds, and up to 60% longer service life compared to their predecessors. This means that in applications where bearing performance specifications remain unchanged, customers can reduce costs by downsizing and installing smaller, more cost effective bearing solutions.

These improvements in quality, performance and running accuracy were achieved by developing new cages and rollers with new dimensions and crowned faces. Schaeffler's FAG range of spherical roller bearings is ideal for demanding operating environments, particularly for applications in which very high load carrying capacity and reliability are key design criteria.
