Deep groove ball bearings
Drawn cup roller clutches

Ergometers are among the most frequently used types of training equipment.

The main customer requirements placed on the bearings used in this fitness machine are good rotation characteristics and a low noise level as well a long operating life and trouble-free operation.

FAG deep groove ball bearings are reliable, economical and maintenance-free; the ideal bearing for high quality ergometers.

The ergometer includes other Schaeffler components, namely drawn cup roller clutches.

These are mounted on the flywheel shaft of the ergometer and ensure that it can only be driven in one direction.

The particular advantages of INA drawn cup roller clutches include:

  • low frictional torque => quiet, smooth running of the ergometer
  • well-matched design and material => long operating life
  • consistent quality => stable frictional torque, simplified suitability for electronic systems

In addition, the Schaeffler Group supplies bottom bracket bearing solutions.
