As a leader in technology and innovation for rolling bearings, Schaeffler is continually driving progress in this field – and continues to set new standards in tribology, the study of friction, lubrication and wear. The service function Tribology works on methods for preventing friction and the resulting wear as far as possible.

We use our extensive know-how relating to optimum rolling bearing lubrication for specific applications to provide dedicated solutions. We provide our customers with skilled, comprehensive advice in selecting the appropriate lubricant – for each application. There is even more: where necessary, our experts will also develop and test completely new lubricants. In doing this, we take account of all the relevant parameters: the special features of the application, cost-efficiency, operating life, sustainability etc.

On the basis of our well-founded knowledge in the field of lubricants, we can achieve tribological solutions that set standards for others. We work in close partnership with leading research institutes and mineral oil companies. In addition, our medias® software offers a unique global product selection and information system for determining the optimum lubricant in the specific application.
