Transmission bearings

Modern rail vehicles are designed to offer a high degree of passenger comfort, generate little noise and be economical. This is made possible, amongst other things, by the rolling bearings developed by Schaeffler Group Industrial that can be found in railway transmissions. Various ball and roller bearing types are put into operation for guiding the transmission shafts. As well as the types mentioned below, further types such as deep groove ball bearings, spherical roller bearings, and angular contact ball bearings are used.
