Standard bearings

Rolling bearings for industrial gears must be both available worldwide and cost effective. These requirements are generally met by standardized rolling bearing designs. Standard bearings meet most requirements in the gear construction sector and can be used to construct efficient, reliable and cost-effective gears. Large gears are usually fitted with roller bearings (spherical roller bearings, cylindrical roller bearings and tapered roller bearings) due to their higher load carrying capacity. Thrust bearings, e.g. spherical roller thrust bearings and cylindrical roller thrust bearings , are used to accommodate high axial loads. Ball bearings and needle roller bearings are the bearings of choice in light gears. INA and FAG offers all of these rolling bearing types.

Special designs

Where special designs regarding size, speed or loadability are required, our customers can select rolling bearings from our target industry programme. In cooperation with our customers, we develop customized bearings.
