Energy Efficiency

On the path towards more energy efficiency

The world’s population and energy requirements are both growing – and natural resources are becoming increasingly scarce. Acting in a way that is energy-efficient, environmentally conscious, and sustainable at the same time is an important objective for our company, both today and in the future.

As one of the world's leading suppliers of technology and innovations, we have a comprehensive portfolio of energy-efficient products for this field. At the same time, we also assist you in achieving your targets in terms of high productivity, maximum energy efficiency, and sustainable competitiveness.

Our energy-efficient product portfolio

Generation C Deep Groove Ball Bearings
Cylindrical Roller Bearings with Torus-shaped Rollers
Twin Tandem Wheel Bearings
Generation C deep groove ball bearings

Cut energy consumption with FAG Generation C deep groove ball bearings: Improved manufacturing methods produce optimum raceway surfaces, optimize osculation, and thus reduce friction even further. more

Cylindrical roller bearings with torus-shaped rollers

Cylindrical roller bearings with torus-shaped rollers have a significantly longer operating life under axial loads. Further advantages: Higher permissible axial load, lower bearing temperature, and reduced wear on the rollers. more

Twin Tandem wheel bearings

The Twin Tandem bearings used in front and rear axle differentials significantly reduce frictional resistance compared to existing volume-production transmissions and allow a 1.1 percent reduction in fuel consumption. more

Cronitect Hybrid Bearings
Slimline Drawn Cup Needle Roller Bearings
Energy-efficient Coatings
Cronitect hybrid bearings

Together with high-performance ceramic rolling elements, ultra-light and virtually maintenance-free Cronitect hybrid bearings reduce friction by up to 50% under load compared to conventional deep groove ball bearings. more

Slimline drawn cup needle roller bearing

Drawn cup needle roller bearings from the Slimline series allow bearing supports with the greatest possible energy efficiency to be created in the smallest design envelopes. Compared to conventional plain bearing supports, they reduce friction by more than 60% and noticeably simplify the adjacent construction. more

Energy-efficient coatings

Coating systems from Schaeffler increase the rating life of the components, minimize friction, and thus make a significant contribution to conserving resources and improving energy efficiency.
