  • Schaeffler presents expanded Food program in Hanover
  • Sustainable engineering generates extensive customer benefits
  • Expanding its range of bearing solutions for the food industry

Birmingham, United Kingdom | April 20, 2022 | Schaeffler will be demonstrating how further successes in sustainability can be achieved in the food and packaging industry at Hannover Messe 2022. The automotive and industrial supplier is not simply confining its efforts to new products in this area but recommending a much more comprehensive approach to the development of solutions.

As Ralf Moseberg, Senior Vice President Industrial Automation at Schaeffler, emphasizes: “The foundation for the use of resources is laid as early as the design and development phases for production equipment. It must focus on comparing the efficiency and operating points of the various drive systems, such as torque motors or geared motors, extending the relubrication intervals and service life of components, reducing friction, and optimizing seals.” Reducing the lubricant requirement has multiple benefits for the operator and the environment, such as savings on water, cleaning agents, and reprocessing costs that are always generated in parallel.

Extended Food programme for safe, clean, and sustainable food production

Specific environmental influences and legal requirements call for the use of adapted rolling bearing solutions. As part of its new Food programme (series FD), Schaeffler is offering a range of corrosion-resistant and sealed standard deep groove bearings. These are supplied with an initial application of lubricants produced to food industry standards. In addition, Schaeffler will be presenting new housing units made of white, glass fiber reinforced plastic, providing high levels of resistance for sensitive food processing applications. The lubricant compound, Schaeffler Lubtect, is recommended for particularly demanding operating conditions and lubricating requirements. Lubtect is a porous but dimensionally stable polymer, which ensures continuous and reliable lubrication.
