Whether standard electric motor or highly specialized electric drive - deep groove ball bearings are often the most suitable type of rolling bearing. With over 100 years of experience in deep groove ball bearings, Schaeffler is the ideal supplier and development partner for all types of electric motors.
Naturally, our product portfolio also includes all other types of rolling bearings commonly used in electric motors, such as cylindrical roller bearings, angular contact ball bearings, spindle bearings, axial self-aligning roller bearings, etc. We can offer many of these products as current-insulated variants with either a ceramic coating on the rings or ceramic rolling elements to provide optimum protection against damaging current transmission.
In addition to our products themselves, our service also includes design and consulting. In the event that our catalogue products do not meet your requirements, we will be pleased to develop a suitable special bearing in close cooperation with you.
