Cut noise levels with FAG Generation C deep groove ball bearings
Noisy bearings are bad news for electric motors. The same applies for all equipment and appliances in the home or at the office. This is because they are all subject to strict controls regarding noise, environmental protection and occupational safety.
Although the deep groove ball bearing is one of the quietest bearings available, it can still generate some noise since it transmits vibrations to its surroundings. The main requirements placed on modern deep groove ball bearings are therefore optimum vibration behavior and low running noise without any limitations on speed, load carrying capacity and operating life.
We analyzed the causes of noise using the most up-to-date testing methods. Our findings helped us to completely improve the internal design of the bearing and this is how the new Generation C of FAG deep groove ball bearings came into being.
50 percent less noise
• Improved raceway surfaces
• Improved ball quality
• Optimized osculation
• Narrower manufacturing tolerances
• New riveted steel cage
• Large selection of special greases
Cut energy consumption with FAG Generation C deep groove ball bearings
The efficiency of electric motors is constantly being increased. This target also applies for household appliances, tools and office equipment. One option is reducing the power loss of the bearing supports. This is clearly a case for deep groove ball bearings.
These bearings are characterized by particularly low frictional torque and are also especially suitable for high speeds. By using improved manufacturing methods, we have improved the surfaces of raceways by making them “smoother” and have optimized the osculation, in order to lower the friction even further.
35 percent less friction
• Reduced energy consumption
• Reduced heat generation
• Long grease operating life
• Long bearing operating life
• Higher speeds
• Lower overall costs
