Six-Figure Savings due to FAG Split Spherical Roller Bearings

The customer is a globally-active specialty chemicals company based in Australia. Challenge for Schaeffler: The exhaust gas fan failed in the processing facility of the chemical plant. The plant operator was forced to replace the rolling bearing quickly due to the toxic gases and the resulting explosive atmosphere that occurred in the chemical production process. However, it was very difficult to access the standard spherical roller bearing, with which the fan was originally fitted. Experience had shown that a mounting time of approximately 14 hours had to be expected in such cases.

Vibration Monitoring of Rolling Bearings on High-Pressure Grinding Roller

The customer is an international manufacturer of cement, ready-mix concrete, and gravel and is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of construction materials. Challenge for Schaeffler: High-pressure grinding roller mills are used to grind raw materials. Damage to the bearings of grinding rollers results in disruptions to the production process. In order to minimize this risk, Schaeffler was commissioned to conduct vibration measurements as part of a pilot project supported by the machine manufacturer (OEM).

Reworking and Reconditioning of Support Rollers for the Steel Industry

The customer is a medium-sized French steel manufacturer who has specialised in the production of cold-rolled strip steel. The range of products comprises surface- finished strip steel as well as quenched and drawn steels. The company belongs to an internationally operating steel group from Germany. Challenge for Schaeffler: The outside diameters of the support rollers produce the surface of the finished strip material. Six to eight support rollers form a cluster. The surfaces of the support rollers and the minimal variation of their diameters are, therefore, decisive for zero-defect quality and the thickness tolerance of the finished product.

Monitoring Cable Cars using the FAG SmartCheck

Today, cable cars are generally used as a means of transporting passengers. The following example is taken from a customer with a small cable car with two tracks and a capacity of 20 persons each. The cable cars are pulled up the slope by the drive train in the upper station. Challenge for Schaeffler: For cable cars designed to carry passengers, strict safety requirements must be adhered to. In order to ensure that these safety requirements are met and, at the same time, to ensure smooth operation, it was very important...

FAG SmartCheck ensures Maximum Crane Availability in the Trimodal Port

RheinCargo GmbH & Co. KG is one of Europe‘s leading logistics companies. With seven public ports on the river Rhine, including the Niehl I cargo handling port located on the western bank of the river in Cologne‘s Niehl district, the company is also Germany‘s second-largest port operator. Challenge for Schaeffler: Due to the high degree of utilization and lack of redundancy, the gantry cranes at Cologne‘s Niehl I cargo-handling port are among its most critical machines. The hoisting gear trolley is used to transfer containers from land to road transport vehicles and ships.
