ABEG® in packaging technology

Our customers include manufacturers of bag making machines, canning plants, blister packaging for medical products, and thermoforming machines for packaging sausage and cheese. Thanks to our high level of application expertise and flexibility, Findling Wälzlager is the ideal partner for these manufacturers of special machinery and can offer fast delivery with our large inventories.

Packaging food comes with special requirements, such as optimum corrosion protection, the best possible hygiene standards, and resistance to aggressive chemicals. Low-corrosion stainless steel roller bearings are ideally suited for this. In Findling Wälzlager’s extensive stainless steel portfolio, you will find, among other things, york type track and cam followers, needle-roller bearings, housing bearings, self-aligning ball bearings, thrust bearings and deep-groove ball bearings.

Flange bearings or die-cast aluminum bearings are used for sealing mechanisms and drive rollers for conveyor lines and tracks. They are very small, lightweight and corrosion-resistant. The Clean and Silber series are also suitable for higher loads. Findling also has galvanized steel sheet housings and stainless steel designs in its product range in which a bearing insert is clamped. Three models are available: plummer block (PP), 2-Loch flange bearings (PFD) und 3-Loch flange bearings (PFL).

Sliders that move up and down are not least a common application in packaging machines. Linear bushings, which make linear motion possible, are readily used for this. Findling has various products in its range: in addition to normal linear bushings (NKB), there are also compact linear bushings (KKB) and not least super ball bushings (SKB), both in standard and stainless steel designs.

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.

How do I know if I’ve chosen the right bearing clearance class – C0, CN, CM, C2, C3...? An article from our konstruktiv! series. Tips series.

It is not the load rating but the right overall technical specifications that are decisive when it comes to the service life and performance of roller bearings.

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.

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.

Special greasing from Findling

Findling Wälzlager has invested in two dosing systems for roller bearing grease as well as in a special cleaning system. This makes it possible to produce special bearings on small and medium scales of up to 1000 units per batch size. The cleaning system guarantees oil-free roller bearing surfaces with a surface tension in line with VDA of 40 mN/m such that even high-quality PTFE greases can be reliably processed.

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.
