With Generation C, FAG Bearings is setting a new standard for deep groove ball bearings - 50 per cent less noise and 35 per cent less friction. This significant improvement in performance can be traced to the optimized osculation of the rolling elements on the rings - plus high ball quality and improved raceway surfaces. The changes include more efficient HRS sealing and a riveted steel cage. These design amendments allow applications to operate much more quietly, leading to increased efficiency and higher speeds. Longer life and lower energy consumption are the end result!
