Tapered roller bearings

Tapered roller bearings

FAG tapered roller bearings are characterized by high radial and axial load carrying capacity and by a large usable speed range. They are efficient at supporting forces and ensure a precise and rigid shaft guidance system due to the large effective distance between the bearings. They are adjustable, can be dismantled, and are therefore easy to fit.


Tapered roller bearings in X-life quality – reliable and energy efficient with a high load-carrying capacity
Numerous FAG tapered roller bearing series are available in X-life quality. In order to fulfill the requirements of X-life, the geometry, surfaces, dimensional and running accuracy, and the material and heat treatment process were all optimized.

Features of X-life tapered roller bearings

FAG tapered roller bearings in X-life quality increase the overall efficiency of your machines and equipment.


Tapered roller bearings comprise solid inner and outer rings with tapered raceways and tapered rollers with cages. The bearings are not self-retaining. As a result, the inner ring together with the rollers and cage can be fitted separately from the outer ring. Tapered roller bearings can support axial loads from one direction as well as high radial loads. They must normally be axially adjusted against a second bearing fitted in a mirror image arrangement.


We are offering our proven catalog series in X-life quality. The geometry, surfaces and materials were optimized. Thus FAG Tapered Roller Bearings X-life offer an increase in the basic dynamic load ratings (Cr) of up to 20 % compared to previous designs, an increase in the basic rating life of approximately 70 % under the same operating conditions und up to 75 % less friction. A convincing advantage of X-life are product characteristics that provide you with new design perspectives, for example, to design particularly low-noise or high load capacity systems solutions.
