Bearings enable lighter, more compact machine builds

Written by: Schaeffler | Published:

In industrial robots, mechanical handling systems and industrial gearboxes, high precision, lightweight and compactness are important design characteristics.

There is also a drive towards increasing rigidity, positional accuracy and rating life. To fulfil these demanding requirements, Schaeffler has launched two new ranges of angular contact rolling bearings – the AXS and SGL series. These provide extremely lightweight bearing solutions that can support significant loads and high tilting moments. The reduced design envelope of the bearings also opens up opportunities for compact machine builds and automation systems.
