Super precision spindle bearings


X-life ultra spindle bearings

X-life ultra spindle bearings are a truly revolutionary new bearing design made from Cronidur 30, a patented high-nitrogen steel originally developed by FAG for critical aerospace applications. X-life ultra bearings offer remarkable performance characteristics, longer life and are 100x more corrosion resistant than conventional stainless steels. X-life ultra spindle bearings are considered the most advanced bearing available on the market today in terms of load capacity and speed.


Floating bearing solutions

FAG offers special customized solutions, tailored to meet specific application requirements. These solutions are based upon a wide selection of precision cylindrical roller bearings, which are also available in a hybrid version.

In addition ball bearings with integrated floating bearing functions - so called Floating Displacement bearings (FD) - in various design configurations, e.g. sealed or with tapered innter ring bore or with Direct Lube feature, are available. Absolutely new are FAG ready-to-mount floating bearing units with built in spring preload and many additional functions.


Sealed spindle bearings

FAG B..2RSD and FAG high speed spindle bearings XCS, HCS and HSS are protected by non contacting seals. They are greased for life with the FAG high speed grease Arcanol L75 in the right quantity.
