Reliable and efficient bearing support for moving machine parts – that has been our profession for more than 100 years. When it comes to bearing arrangements in power tools, we are both a dependable supplier and development partner. Here is what you can expect from us: a broad catalog range – from low-end to high-end solutions – tailored to your needs, cost effectiveness through large quantities and on-site production with state-of-the-art technologies, guaranteed quality that is the same around the world, application-related consultation during all phases of the product life cycle. The depth of our knowledge of the industry makes it possible for us to provide optimum bearing designs and a broad range of bearing models and to optimize costs, performance, and quality in a holistic approach.
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
