Schaeffler has extensive expertise thanks to decades of collaborating with well-known paper machine manufacturers and with maintenance and production departments. Numerous paper factories profit from Schaeffler's solutions, which make it possible to economically and safely increase production speeds with utmost reliability.
Paper machines are the giants in mechanical engineering: Lengths of 200 meters and widths of 10 meters are no rarity. In just one minute, nearly 2000 meters of paper fly through the machine at around 120 km/h over rollers and cylinders. The rolling bearings used here are subjected to extremely high demands with respect to moisture, intense heat, shaft deflections, high speeds, and long lifetimes. Only rolling bearings that are extremely reliable make it possible to achieve the best paper quality.
