Whether standard electric motor or highly specialized electric drive - deep groove ball bearings are often the most suitable type of rolling bearing. With over 100 years of experience in deep groove ball bearings, Schaeffler is the ideal supplier and development partner for all types of electric motors.
Naturally, our product portfolio also includes all other types of rolling bearings commonly used in electric motors, such as cylindrical roller bearings, angular contact ball bearings, spindle bearings, axial self-aligning roller bearings, etc. We can offer many of these products as current-insulated variants with either a ceramic coating on the rings or ceramic rolling elements to provide optimum protection against damaging current transmission.
In addition to our products themselves, our service also includes design and consulting. In the event that our catalogue products do not meet your requirements, we will be pleased to develop a suitable special bearing in close cooperation with you.
The extensive range of Schaeffler products for hydraulic systems and fluid pumps is included in the area of “Fluid Technology.” Bearings and components for these demanding applications need to be extremely reliable and yet cost-effective. “Fluid Technology” mainly meets these requirements with individualized, customer-specific developments or – in certain cases – with sophisticated standard products.
The standard for technical products is constantly being raised through innovations. Product cycles are becoming much shorter and jumps in technology increasingly greater. This development is also true in gear manufacturing. More precise calculation methods, constantly increasing computing power, and improved technological know-how – such as in material technology, stability, and tribology – have mobilized reserve capacities. The specific gearbox weight has been reduced by around 80% within 20 years. Rolling bearings have made a significant contribution towards this development. Through targeted research and development, constant increases in quality, and an intense exchange of experiences with gearbox manufacturers and the user industry, we have continuously increased the functionality and operational safety of our bearings, while minimizing power losses at the same time. Gearboxes with quality rolling bearings are efficient and reliable.
In the area of pneumatics, Schaeffler bundles applications for compressed air technology and thermal fluid technology: from compressors to vacuum pumps to ventilators. Schaeffler’s portfolio ranges from a huge assortment of different standard rolling bearings – also in X-life quality – to high-precision bearings for high-speed machines, often designed as customer-specific special bearings, with housing units and components rounding off the offer.
Schaeffler also offers bearing solutions for:
Public and private institutions
Locks and fittings
Electrical household appliances
