Schaeffler offers a range of housing units that are robust, ready-to-fit machine elements for the design of economical bearing arrangements. These products have proven effective over many years and are available in many different series including the X-life range.
Schaeffler housing units are designed to achieve consistency, control and confidence.
Housing units are available as plummer block, flanged and take-up housing units in numerous different designs. The units are ready to-fit and comprise cast iron or sheet steel housings in which radial insert ball bearings are integrated. Corrosion-resistant units are available with the Corrotect coating, in a high grade steel version or made from plastic.
The bore of the housing and the outer ring of the bearing have a spherical profile and are matched to each other. This adjusts the bearing ring in the housing for static shaft misalignments. Thanks to its special mounting type ─ primarily eccentric locking collars or grub screws ─ the radial insert ball bearings are easy to affix onto the shaft. They are particularly easy to fit when they are used in combination with drawn shafts.
The radial insert ball bearings are fitted with multi-piece seals that effectively protect the rolling element set against contamination and moisture, even under difficult and critical operating conditions. Schaeffler offers a wide variety of housing units with radial insert ball bearings. Radial insert ball bearings are based on single-row deep groove ball bearings.
Variants of housing units include:
- INA radial insert bearing housing units i.a.w. DIN
- FAG radial insert bearing housing units i.a.w. JIS
