Printing Machinery
Performance and cost effective Solutions for the printing industry

High-precision and wear-free bearing support

For decades, the Schaeffler Group has specialized in all printing machine applications with its INA and FAG products. It has long been the case that potential for optimization no longer solely rests with continuously improving individual components: Maximum, reliable printing quality at minimum costs is not possible until all of the printing machine’s subsystems have been fine-tuned to perfection. Understanding the complete system is becoming more and more important for meeting the constantly increasing demands for performance and cost effectiveness.
Whether for non-locating bearings, locating bearings, track rollers, oscillating bearings, or the entire linear technology range, whether for standard bearings or a customer-specific solution – the principle of “systematic solutions” applies for all of these INA and FAG products.
