FAG Bearings have been synonymous with high quality for over 120 years. In 1883, Friedrich Fischer designed a ball grinding machine in Schweinfurt, Germany that, for the first time, made it possible to produce absolutely round steel balls by grinding. The invention is regarded as the foundation for the entire rolling bearing industry.

FAG Bearings (part of the Schaeffler Group) offers a broad range of bearing products, among the most comprehensive in the rolling bearing industry. FAG Bearings can supply products for applications in around 60 industrial sectors and numerous automotive applications as well as a variety of special solutions with which complex tasks involving bearings can be managed reliably and economically.

FAG Rolling bearings usually are composed of two bearing rings with integral raceways. Rolling elements are arranged between the rings and roll on the raceways. Rolling elements can be balls, cylindrical rollers, needle rollers, tapered rollers or barrel rollers. The rolling elements are generally guided by a cage that keeps them at a uniform distance from each FAG Bearingsother and prevents them coming into contact with each other. In needle roller bearings and ribless spherical roller bearings, the cage also ensures that the rolling element axis is positioned correctly. Where bearings can be dismantled, the cage holds the rolling elements together and gives easier fitting of the bearings. For particular applications, rolling bearings with a full complement of balls, cylindrical rollers or needle rollers may be used. 

FAG Plain bearings are available as radial bearings, axial bearings, strips, cups and in many other designs. These bearings are known for their quiet operation and are well suited for applications where high loads must be supported under relatively slow rotary and swivel motion and at low and high temperatures. Because of their versatile specific characteristics, they are used in almost all areas of industry and especially where the available space is limited.

FAG Generation C Bearing

Generation C - The new standard for deep groove ball bearings

With Generation C, FAG Bearings is setting a new standard for deep groove ball bearings - 50 per cent less noise and 35 per cent less friction. This significant improvement in performance can be traced to the optimized osculation of the rolling elements on the rings - plus high ball quality and improved raceway surfaces. The changes include more efficient HRS sealing and a riveted steel cage. These design amendments allow applications to operate much more quietly, leading to increased efficiency and higher speeds. Longer life and lower energy consumption are the end result!
