Findling Netzwerk

As the world’s leading manufacturer of braking systems for railway and utility vehicles, Knorr-Bremse has once again named Findling Wälzlager GmbH its “preferred supplier”. 2020 saw the achievement of the objective of global supply, including the supply of the Chinese plants. Knorr-Bremse uses Findling’s roller bearings in a series of applications involving rail transport systems and the scope of delivery is steadily increasing.

The coronavirus pandemic has had a massive impact on supply chains and the price trend is becoming less and less certain. Our management team discussed how Findling is dealing with the opportunities and risks involved and how it is maintaining its delivery capacities.

New profile and roughness measurement

Recently, a profile and roughness measuring device was added to the Findling Wälzlager quality laboratory. The flexible machine enables different tests to be carried out on roller bearings. This, in turn, helps to ensure seamless quality control from production to outgoing goods.

A look back at 2019

China was the origin of the Covid-19 pandemic. Its industry has managed to stabilize itself considerably by now.

Whether it’s for drive technology, the packaging industry or sensors: Findling Wälzlager would like to make it easier for its customers to choose a technically and economically optimum product from our comprehensive product range.

Picture from the year 1956

With more than 16 million products sold annually, Findling Wälzlager GmbH has proven its responsibility and enthusiasm for rolling bearing technology for 100 years. Founded in 1919, today the company is a highly specialised and globally active player. The innovative strength of the company, which is now in its third generation as an owner-managed company, is unbroken, even after 100 years. In each generation, the feel for the needs of the market has developed at an increasing pace. 100 years in…

Findling Wälzlager has invested in a new digital microscope that makes optical 2D and 3D measurements with a measurement resolution of 0.05 µm possible. The microscope can visualize roller bearing surfaces in 3D and magnify them 2000x. This allows processes in quality assurance, damage analysis, and complaint management to be optimized and accelerated.

As the world’s leading manufacturer of braking systems for railway and utility vehicles, Knorr-Bremse has once again named Findling Wälzlager GmbH its “preferred supplier.” The partnership between the two companies is currently focusing on the global procurement of high-quality roller bearing technology. Knorr-Bremse uses Findling’s roller bearings in a series of applications involving rail transport systems, and the scope of delivery is steadily increasing.

Roller bearing donation

Findling Wälzlager donated a total of 50 deep-groove ball bearings to the young researchers of the Academic Aviators (Akademische Fliegergruppe - Akaflieg) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. The noise-tested bearings in electric motor quality are used in the prototype development of the new AK-X glider.
