  • Data-based additional service saves time and costs and ensures increased transparency in the mounting of spindle bearings
  • Measurement records and logistical information for tracking rolling bearing products available at any time
  • Digitalization of incoming goods processes and warehousing

The correct mounting of spindle bearings is one of the particularly challenging manual tasks in spindle production. Manufacturing tolerances must be observed, bearing and spindle data retrieved, and matching bearings and shims selected. After mounting, it is important to document the entire process. Schaeffler’s new Bearing Data Service simplifies this process by making all individual spindle bearing data – in particular the measurement records from production – available digitally using a data matrix code (DMC) and a cloud solution.

The DMC according to the GS1 standard contains the individual bearing serial number for clear identification of the bearing. Following implementation of a software solution by the spindle manufacturer, the date of manufacture, diameter tolerances, width deviation, contact angle, and deviation from the nominal projection can be transmitted online at any time via the serial number. Order documents, PDF files or manually created Excel lists as well as the associated manual steps, challenges, and problems are now a thing of the past. The DMC enables 100% traceability and the digitalization of the incoming goods process allows the spindle manufacturer to reliably monitor his own stock. This simplifies the pairing of bearings, shafts, and housings and accelerates the spindle mounting process.
