Schaeffler shapes the mobility for tomorrow - today.
As a leader in technology and innovation, Schaeffler has always taken on the significant technological, societal and economic trends – and applies its own research to participate in actively shaping them. The best example: mobility as a megatrend.
With our innovative products and solutions, we are already paving the way to the mobility of the future, which will be driven equally by both electric mobility and optimised internal combustion engines. We are actively involved in both fields. We are creating a firm foundation for electric mobility through our eMobility Systems Division. And in the case of internal combustion engines, we are working to turn the potential for optimisation by up to 30 percent into reality.
Schaeffler is now a supplier to almost all automotive vehicle manufacturers. The subject of mobility, however, is one that we see as far from being restricted to the Automotive Division: For motorcycles, Schaeffler is a leading supplier and development partner for bearings and precision components in engines, transmissions and chassis. The pedal cycle market is one to which Schaeffler has for many years supplied a wide range of products for conventional pedal cycles and e-bikes. Furthermore, we have for over 100 years been developing innovative solutions for bearing applications in rail vehicles, such as wheelset bearings as well as bearings and components for traction motors and transmissions, for wagon pivots and tilting systems as well as for doors and numerous other applications. In the aerospace sector, we have made our name with high precision bearing arrangements for aircraft engines, for helicopters, for the US Space Shuttle and the European launch vehicle Ariane.
With the theme of efficient future mobility, we are continuing systematically along the path that our Company has traditionally taken – and are supplying intelligent answers to the major challenges in mobility both now and in the future.
