Trent 500 engine


FAG Aerospace has developed, in close cooperation with Rolls-Royce, within a very short time new main shaft bearings (high degree of integration, use of new materials) for the Trent 500 engine of the Airbus generations A340-500 and A340-600. Rolls-Royce is one of the largest engine manufacturers in the world.

FAG success factors:

  • FAG Aerospace is a development partner for engine bearings (main shaft bearings and gearbox bearings).
  • The Trent 500 engine offers a very high power density. And that is why the main shaft bearings are designed for the highest loads, speeds and temperatures.
  • The reliability of the highly stressed main shaft bearings has been proven by FAG in comprehensive rig testing programs.
