The Schaeffler Group is a global automotive and industrial supplier. The Schaeffler Group is already making a decisive contribution to “Mobility for Tomorrow” today with its high-precision components and systems in engine, transmission, and chassis applications, in addition to rolling and plain bearing solutions for a large number of industrial applications. Since its beginnings, the Schaeffler company has been characterized by groundbreaking innovations and global customer orientation.
The cornerstone for the group of companies today was laid by brothers Dr. Wilhelm Schaeffler and Dr.-Ing. E.h. Georg Schaeffler in 1946 with the founding of the limited company. The rise of the company began when Dr. Georg Schaeffler invented the needle cage in 1949, followed by the production of large quantities of cage-guided needle roller bearings by INA for the German automotive industry shortly thereafter.
The FAG brand is inextricably linked with the rolling bearing industry. In Schweinfurt, Germany, in 1883, Friedrich Fischer designed a ball mill that made it possible to use machines for the first time to produce high-precision steel balls in large volumes. This idea is regarded as the historic beginning of the rolling bearing industry. FAG has been a registered trademark since 1905 and, after being taken over by Schaeffler in 2001, is a key element of the Schaeffler Group together with INA and LuK.
Based in Langen, the Automotive Aftermarket division was founded in 1976. The division is responsible for the global replacement part business and provides innovative repair solutions in OEM quality. Online portal REPXPERT provides extensive services for repair shops, such as practical training, help for repairs via a hotline or the repair shop portal, and the development of special tools.
Good service is a Schaeffler tradition – in the same way as the development and production of high precision parts to premium quality. In order to ensure that our products perform reliably, we offer you the necessary support as early as the development phase. This is because, to us, service means: a partnership with the customer, from the first idea behind the design to physical delivery of the order.
A key component in design advisory work is the design of the rolling bearings. Through optimum design of our products, we aim to provide you with a competitive edge. With this goal in mind, we have spent decades successfully applying and using calculation programs.
We also provide customer versions of BEARINX, in order to develop further our contact with you and to promote successful cooperation.
The product spectrum includes rolling and plain bearings, linear and direct drive technology, as well as service features such as maintenance products and monitoring systems. The Industrial division offers a wide portfolio of bearing solutions, ranging from high-speed and high-precision bearings with small diameters to large-size bearings several meters wide. Increasingly, the focus here is on smart products and on connecting components.
The main development centers of the Schaeffler Group in Germany are Herzogenaurach, Schweinfurt and Bühl, which operate in a network with other development centers in Europe, Asia, North and South America.
