Making the optimum roller bearing choice involves finding one that meets all the requirements of the application in question and has an impressive price/performance ratio. Schaerer Medical AG uses the proven ABEG® method to optimally design, angular contact ball bearings, spherical plain bearings, and deep-groove ball bearings that are used in mobile operating tables.

This quality is especially important for drive systems used in rehabilitation. Mechanisms for stair climbers have to be compact, but also powerful and fail-safe, and they need to consume as little energy as possible. However, the most important criterion is quiet operation, because people with disabilities sometimes react very sensitively to background noises. There is one component that is primarily responsible for ensuring a low noise and vibration level for gears, which is...

Deep groove ball bearings

With its ABEG® eXtreme product family, Findling Wälzlager offers high performance that is paired a longer service life and fast delivery times at a very good price/performance ratio. One of the four available series is Xclean: Deep-groove ball bearings, self-aligning ball bearings, thrust bearings, needle-roller bearings and numerous other series are suitable for use in damp, corrosive or aggressive chemical environments.

Identifying and repairing rolling bearing damage

Rolling bearing damage can have a wide variety of causes and is not necessarily caused by a faulty original product. However, most companies are unable to carry out a detailed damage analysis – good thing Findling Wälzlager’s experts can provide further assistance here: Damage analysis is part of the service portfolio. Findling Wälzlager acts as an independent partner that looks into the causes of the ball bearing defects and helps solve problems.

Radial bearing/thrust bearing

Combined radial/thrust bearings hold a special position among rolling bearings: They are capable of simultaneously handling very large radial and axial forces and are characterized by their particularly compact design. Findling Wälzlager offers combined bearings in a wide variety of designs and rolling member pairings.

Customers benefit from high quality

Thin-section bearings are great for solving problems in applications where there is little installation space, but only if they are selected and used professionally. Findling Wälzlager GmbH has built up special expertise in this regard. This allows typical problems to be avoided from the outset, and the customer benefits from consistently high quality standards, regardless of whether they’re in the standard or premium segments.

The right roller bearing selection

There are a lot of popular misconceptions when it comes to the selection of roller bearings. A good example of this is the myth regarding the load capacity of roller bearings: the specification of the load factor in the catalog and above all the overall correct technical specification are both crucial in determining the performance of a bearing. When making the right selection, the bearing clearance and fit also play a decisive role in addition to the cage.

Special for high speeds

Deep groove ball bearings with "electric motor quality" – this is how many providers market their products. Upon closer inspection, the term does not actually mean much since there are no precisely formulated, cross-manufacturer criteria for it. The comprehensive features of Findling Wälzlager’s Xspeed deep-groove ball bearing illustrate which properties are actually important and that a "noise test" is not enough.

Robust despite high speed

High-speed applications require the tightest tolerances, minimal quantities of lubrication, low frictional torque, and high-purity roller bearing greases. In addition to the load caused by high speeds, the resulting increased heat development should also be taken into account. True running accuracy also plays a role with regard to a bearing’s service life. The Xspeed bearing equipment components were tailored specifically to this performance segment.
