Industrial Transmission
Increased the functionality with minimized power losses and operational safety for gearboxes

Efficient and reliable solutions for Gearboxes

Every industry places unique demands on the gearboxes it uses. The following are the most important influencing variables for the bearings used: load, speed, required operating life, lubrication, and shaft arrangement. Schaeffler is familiar with the technological trends thanks to being in close contact with technical colleges and universities. We are therefore always in a position to offer our customers the right bearings for their gearboxes with all of the accompanying services, regardless of the industry or purpose.


Schaeffler bearing solutions for gearboxes include the following applications:
  • Industrial gearboxes
  • Rolling mill gearboxes
  • Extruder gearboxes
  • Bevel gearboxes
  • Marine gearboxes


Standard bearings and special designs

Rolling bearings for industrial gearboxes must be available and cost-effective anywhere in the world. These requirements are generally met through standardized rolling bearing designs. They satisfy most requirements in gear manufacturing and can be used for designing high-capacity, operationally safe, and cost-effective gearboxes. Roller bearings (spherical, cylindrical, and tapered roller bearings) are prevalent in larger gearboxes due to their high load-carrying capacity. When there are high axial loads, axial bearings are used, such as axial spherical roller bearings and axial cylindrical roller bearings. In lightweight gearboxes, ball bearings and needle roller bearings are preferred. INA and FAG supply all of these rolling bearing types.
Whenever special designs with regard to size, speed, or load-carrying capacity are needed, rolling bearings from the industry range are available for our customers. We work together with our customers to develop special bearing designs.
