FAG E1 SPHERICAL ROLLER BEARINGS

THE NEW STANDARD

For more than two decades, FAG E design spherical roller bearings have been successfully use in kinds of applications where heavy loads have to be accomodated, or where shaft deflections or misalignment of bearings seats must be compensated for. To allow for higher capacity, the basic E design spherical roller bearings do not have a center lip on the inner ring. In order to maintain this high capacity the new E1 bearings were modelled after this basic design. There have been new findings in the field of bearing kinematics, improved production processes and better materials. FAG incorporated these new possibilities in the deveolpment of the E1 design. The E1 design provides an even higher radial and axial load carrying capacity and lower bearing temperatures along with improved safety against ring fracture , which increases both the operational reliability and the cost effectiveness of the bearing.

 

The E1 bearins clearly have a longer service life than the previous E spherical roller bearings thanks to the higher dynamic load roating.

DYNAMIC LOAD RATING: + 17 %

NOMINAL RATING LIFE: + 70 %

In newly built machines, smaller bearings match the performance of the previously used large bearings. This permits downsizing and consequently a more cost-effective bearing (smaller space, less friction, less lubricant consumption, higher speeds).

The new E1 design covers the entire range of the previous E design series: 213, 222, 223, 230, 231, 232, 240 and 241).

90 years of devlopments and know-how acquisition through all kinds of applications and tests make this new standard possible.

1912 - the year in which FAG presented the first spherical roller bearing.

2002 - the year in which FAG created the new standard: E1 bearings, a development of the mythic E bearing of 1979.
