Chassis systems



Customer service means continuous product development and worldwide quality management.

Therefore, our products and systems for tomorrow’s vehicles are developed at our engineering centres all over the world. We continually strive to develop our products and processes in order to improve the cost/benefit relationship, making our products’ quality superior and more competitive.


Our development work does not simply focus on the technical aspects of the bearing itself but rather at its connection and function relative to the automobile and the various other components and modules therein. We know that our customers are successful when all components work in concert with each other.

Design Control

New products are designed and evaluated with quality tools and systems established in accordance to ISO/TS 16949. INA and FAG Automotive support their customers by transmitting bearing data electronically and can offer all data in all common CAD systems.


Separate sample shops outfitted with sophisticated equipment for soft turning, hard grinding, heat treatment and assembly, are prerequisite for design verification and for testing new ideas.
