Welcome to the Future! Unmatched Engineering Excellence from INA & FAG
X-life is the premium brand of Schaeffler Group Industrial. It brings together the strengths of the two brands and gives completely new design opportunities for design engineers.
The use of state of the art manufacturing technologies has resulted in a better, more uniform surface over the whole contact face between the rolling elements and raceway. As a result, under identical load there is a significant reduction in the stress conditions present on the rolling elements and raceway. The improved surface quality gives reduced friction and lower bearing temperatures, running resistance is lower and less strain is placed on the lubricant.
Thanks to such improvements, the basic dynamic load ratings are significantly higher than those of the previous bearing design. As a result, the basic rating life is higher; i.e. the operating life is considerably longer under the same operating conditions. Alternatively, higher loads can be applied while maintaining the same rating life values.
With their optimised characteristics, X-life bearings allow measures such as downsizing of the bearing arrangement. Furthermore, the improved price/performance ratio ultimately increases the overall cost-effectiveness of the bearing arrangement.
