Schaeffler's ball bearings offer longer life, reduced noise and lower friction

As design engineers you are always looking at ways the develop more efficient machines, such as electric motors, pumps, power tools and power transmission systems. Schaeffler's Generation C deep groove ball bearings can offer you this through lower friction, reduced noise and a longer operating life.

Due to their remarkably low noise levels and friction, Schaeffler's Generation C deep groove ball bearings (Generation C) are ideal for use in small electric motors. Particularly those found in fans, power tools and power transmission systems. With the expectations of the consumer market for near silent appliances, such as washing machines and dishwashers, Schaeffler's Generation C is perfect. The optimised design of the bearing minimises frictional torque and maximises efficiency. This saves energy and protects the environment.

Furthermore, with two new sealing concepts, Generation C bearings now offer reduced grease loss and better protection against contamination in harsh environments. In turn this further extends the grease operating life and therefore the operating life of the bearing. The new Z-type dust shield with its innovative labyrinth seal, helps to reduce grease loss by 20%, as well as contamination by 30% compared to previous designs. The patented ELS lip seal, provides maximum sealing at low friction. This is ideal for alternating axial loads. The improved sealing, without any additional friction losses, is due to the innovative shape of the lip, which is perfectly matched to the ring recess. The recesses have also now been moved to the interior of the bearing, significantly improving its robustness during handling and mounting. In addition, non-contact BRS lip seals and HRS lip seals, which start at the inner ring, are available with increased sealing performance in the standard range.

Generation C components such as cages, greases and seals, can be combined together to create the perfect bearing that meets a design engineer’s specific requirements. Due to this modular concept, Schaeffler can offer even more customised solutions with unmatched value for money.
