Behind the range of ball bearings offered by the Schaeffler Group stands FAG, a brand that can look back over more than 100 years of tradition. The FAG name continues to stand today for precision, quality, reliability and innovation.
Deep groove ball bearings are the most widely used of all rolling bearings. Accordingly, they are often used in food processing and packaging machinery.
Cost-effective and readily available
Deep groove ball bearings are cost-effective, readily available and easy to maintain. We continuously improve and adjust the quality of the bearings to meet the increasing and often varying requirements of industry. High-quality materials and precision-machined surfaces ensure reliability and reduce running noise, even in the case of tilted bearings.
A wide variety of volume-produced products and special solutions
FAG deep groove ball bearings are available as volume-produced products in a wide variety of designs, with cages made from sheet steel, polyamide or brass, with various seal types and also from corrosionresistant steel.
High-performance corrosion-resistant steels and ceramics are available for applications that require extremely corrosion-resistant and wear-resistant bearing supports. This enables media lubrication and even dry running. Ask about our special bearings.
Modern sealing concepts
Characteristics such as the quality of materials, seal design, the lubricant selected and reliable adherence to tolerances are decisive factors for the operating life of a bearing. Using sealed FAG deep groove ball bearings that are greased for life is the simplest way to ensure success. The grease type and quantity and the seals themselves are perfectly matched to each other. Our recommendations for deep groove ball bearing seals in this sector are RSR or HRS, depending on requirements and the ambient conditions. RSR sealing shields offer a balanced relationship between friction and sealing action and are suitable for damp operating conditions. The HRS seal is a new development. An optimal seal lip geometry and the narrowest tolerances ensure the bearings have a long operating life.
