Low Friction Rolling Element Bearings Enable Significant Energy Savings in Axial Piston Pumps and Motors

By working closely with a manufacturer of hydraulic pumps and motors, The Schaeffler Group has optimised a number of bearings used in Sauer-Danfoss' newly developed H1 series of axial piston pumps and motors. As a result of the new optimised X-life cylindrical and tapered rolling bearings, overall efficiencies of the H1 pumps and H1 motors have increased by around 2 per cent, resulting in...

Tube Roller Bearing prevents slippage in wind turbine gearboxes.

Incorporating 3 cylindrical rollers, FAG Tube Roller Bearing rotates without slippage under all conditions with no affect on load rating or rating life. Hollow rollers are supported by support roller in inner bore. At higher loads, bore of cylindrical rollers ensures sufficient deflection of larger rollers so they are not overloaded. Together, tube roller and support roller provide fatigue...

Bearings Enable Precise Adjustment of Wind Turbine Blades

In order to optimise operating efficiency, wind turbines need to be aligned to wind conditions. In order to achieve this, the tower and rotor blades must be adjusted so that they make optimal use of the wind, whilst also ensuring that the blades are not subjected to excessive loads that could cause damage. Developed specifically for wind tracking of the nacelle and adjustment of rotor blades on...
