Schaeffler rolling bearings and plain bearings: Tapered roller bearings

FAG tapered roller bearings can support high radial and axial loads. They have a broad range of speeds. They are efficient at supporting forces and ensure a precise and rigid shaft guidance system due to the large effective distance between the bearings. Tapered roller bearings can be adjusted and dismantled, which makes mounting easy.

Tapered roller bearings in X-life quality – reliable and energy efficient with a high load-carrying capacity

Numerous FAG tapered roller bearing series are available in X-life quality. In order to fulfill the requirements of X-life, the geometry, surfaces, dimensional and running accuracy, and the material and heat treatment process were all optimized. FAG tapered roller bearings in X-life quality increase the overall efficiency of your machines and equipment.

Single-row tapered roller bearings

Single-row tapered roller bearings accommodate radial and axial loads (in one direction). For technical reasons, they are always positioned against a second tapered roller bearing in a mirror arrangement.


Various sizes are supplied in the X-life grade. These bearings are indicated in the dimension tables.

Double-row tapered roller bearings

Double-row tapered roller bearings accommodate radial and axial loads (in both directions) and are available in metric or inch sizes. The axial play of the bearing pair is determined during bearing production. There are numerous applications in industry and in the automotive sector.


Various sizes are supplied in the X-life grade. These bearings are indicated in the dimension tables.

Four-row tapered roller bearings

Four-row tapered roller bearings are used in rolling mills for the steel and non-ferrous industry sectors. These bearings are designed for extremely high radial and axial loads as well as for high speeds and impact loads and are used in extremely unfavorable ambient conditions such as high temperatures, water and contamination. With the new Performance series for rolling mills, costs can be significantly reduced from a TCO perspective.


Various sizes are supplied in the X-life grade. These bearings are indicated in the dimension tables.

Axial tapered roller bearings

Schaeffler offers rigid axial tapered roller bearings that can accommodate very high axial loads and impact loads while requiring minimal axial installation space. They are manufactured as both single and double-direction bearings. Schaeffler also makes full-complement axial tapered roller bearings for pressure spindles in roll stands. Depending on the application in question, Schaeffler offers different variants (steel or brass cage)

Advantages of X-life quality
  • Increase in dynamic load ratings of up to 20%
  • An increase in the service life of approximately 70% under the same operating conditions
  • Up to 75% less friction
  • Lower operating costs due to reduced energy consumption
  • Extended maintenance intervals due to improved lubrication
  • Less strain is placed on the lubricant due to reduced heat generation
  • Less noise

X-life – proven to be better

In these bearings, the raceways have optimized roughness and geometrical accuracy. This gives a higher load-carrying capacity and longer service life. X-life is the premium brand that identifies particularly high-performance products under the INA and FAG brands.

They are characterized by a longer rating and operating life – the result of higher dynamic load ratings than those of current standard products. If the load and design envelope are unchanged, X-life bearings have a longer rating life. Longer maintenance intervals are possible.
