FAG Bearings offers a range of FAG spherical bearing products, which is among the most comprehensive lineup in the rolling bearing industry. FAG Bearings, a division of the Schaeffler Group, supplies products for applications in numerous industrial sectors, as well as for numerous automotive applications. These superior bearings also offer a variety of custom solutions that help to reliably and economically manage a slew of complex tasks.
What Is A FAG Spherical Bearing?
One popular bearing FAG Bearings produces is the FAG Spherical Bearing, also known as the FAG Spherical Roller Bearing. A FAG Spherical Bearing can handle heavy radial and axial loads in applications prone to misalignment or shaft deflections. The high load carrying capacity of spherical roller bearings results in low maintenance costs and long bearing service life. Spherical roller bearings are designed for many applications, including wind turbine main shafts, continuous casters, vibratory applications, and high-speed applications.
Delivering outstanding performance, FAG Spherical Bearings are designed for systems in which high loads must be supported, while shaft flexing and misalignments are compensated. They deliver extremely high performance and are designed to carry extreme loads.
With decades of engineering expertise, the FAG Bearings team gathered and combined innovative ideas to improve their spherical roller bearings even further. Their quest for perfection in development and production ensures optimum mechanics and low wear, which increases the service life of a FAG spherical bearing even more. And that comes at a low maintenance outlay and minimum maintenance costs.
Where A FAG Spherical Bearing Might Be Used
There are countless industrial applications in which spherical bearings are used, such as when there are heavy loads, moderate speeds, and misalignments. Some common application areas are:
- Casting Machines
- Certain Off-Road Vehicles
- Fans and Blowers
- Material Handling
- Processing Equipment
- Propulsion and Drilling
- Wind Turbines
Reduce Wear And Tear With A FAG Spherical Bearing
Spherical roller bearings can be lubricated with oil or grease to reduce wear, which will inevitably reduce friction, and noise, and increase the overall life of the bearing. The life of the rolling bearing is dependent upon the application and type of lubrication. Therefore, the lubricant film viscosity, thickness, density, ratio, and selection are of the utmost importance.
