Metallurgical production and processing

Steel is the basic material in a modern industrial society and a standard of its development. It is widely used in all important branches of industry: transportation, mechanical engineering, steel construction, and energy/environmental technology. The Schaeffler Group collaborates with well-known manufacturers and operators to develop rolling bearings for the steel industry. The extreme demands and widely varied operating conditions present a challenge for man and machine. The tailor-made FAG rolling bearings have proven themselves even in the most critical applications, ensuring maximum system availability thanks to their quality.



The operating conditions of rolling bearings in the steel industry are marked by high temperatures, high speeds, and considerable exposure to contamination and water.
