TORB Toroidal Roller Bearings
X-life proven to be better
The FAG TORB toroidal roller bearing is a new rolling bearing type from Schaeffler. It is a single-row rolling bearing with long, slightly crowned rollers. As a non-locating bearing, it combines the self-alignment capabilities of a spherical roller bearing with the axial displacement of a cylindrical or needle roller bearing.
TORB bearings provide an ideal, reliable solution to the problem of locating/non-locating bearing supports. The axial displacement is compensated inside the toroidal roller bearing, so the frictional forces that occur are very small and therefore negligible.
Temperature-related linear expansion and misalignments mean that non-locating bearing designs are particularly important. Toroidal roller bearings are perfect as non-locating bearings here:
The significantly longer rating life of a bearing system with TORB bearings compared to that of conventional solutions means that the overall operating costs (TCO) of the application can be greatly reduced:
X-life is the seal of quality for particularly high-performance products from the INA and FAG brands. They are characterized by a longer rating and operating life – the result of higher dynamic load ratings than those of current standard products.
FAG TORB toroidal roller bearings are manufactured in proven X-life quality and feature up to 15% higher load ratings than comparable products.
