FAG Main spindle bearings

X-life ultra in motor spindles

What is X-life?

Ultimate bearing know-how, combined with excellent materials

  • Constant super performance – X times longer life
  • Excellent high performance steel (Cronidur 30)
  • Ceramic rolling elements, special lubricants
  • Reduced system costs thanks to high quality bearing solutions
 
 
 
 
 
 

Applications

High performance motorspindle with X-Life ultra bearing

  • Power: 20 kW
  • Speed: 16.000 rpm
  • Spindles, ball screws and nut assemblies and indexing tables in machine tools

    • Milling machines, turning machines
    • Grinding machines, boring mills
    • Machining centres
    • Ball screw and nut assemblies

  • Applications in the aerospace industry
  • High tech automotive applications
 
 

Properties

Hybrid bearings with ceramic rolling elements and rings made of high performance stell Cronidur 30:

  • Finer microstructure for increased fatigue life
  • Excellent behaviour under mixed friction conditions
  • Higher Hertzian contact pressure permissible for speeds which are up to 30 % higher than with coventional hybrid bearings
