Lightweight Wheel Bearing minimizes mounting efforts.

FAG wheel bearings feature self-centering, axial spur gear teeth design that ensures positive connection between wheel bearing carrier and input shaft and simplifies mounting. Lending to weight and subsequent CO2 reductions in vehicles, axial gear teeth are placed on axle journal and fixed in place using central screw. Bearing remains clearance-free and is securely held in place during vehicle...

Intelligent Gearbox Monitoring System Allows Corus Engineers to Make Key Design Modifications to Reduce Costly Downtime

The unique PRAXIS condition monitoring partnership between CNES and Schaeffler UK has enabled plant engineers at the beam mill in Lackenby, Teesside to oversee an internal redesign to the hot saws gearbox, which has ultimately saved the company more than Â-£100,000. In 2006, an FAG DTECT X1 online remote monitoring device was installed on the hot saws to determine the condition of the saws....
