Schaeffler FAG Argentina Metro Axle Box
Axlebox bearings are made up of a railway housing and rolling bearing, and are safety-relevant components in rail vehicles. FAG axlebox bearing housings are made from cast material and designed according to the customer’s specifications. All railway housings are calculated via FEM, stress-optimized, and designed in accordance with the specified limiting values.
The rolling bearings used in axlebox bearing applications are FAG WJ/WJP cylindrical roller bearings, complete FAG cylindrical roller bearing units, and FAG TAROL tapered roller bearing units. TAROL and FAG cylindrical roller bearing units are ready-to-install units that are greased and sealed at the factory. FAG TAROL S tapered roller bearings in X-life quality with integrated seals provide a low frictional torque and are particularly suitable for long periods of operation.
All FAG axlebox bearings are designed for high mileages and long maintenance intervals. The lubrication and seals are dependent on the application and the actual climatic conditions. The bearings are manufactured according to the specifications of EN12080. A performance test in accordance with EN12082 is carried out to ensure that the axlebox bearing is suitable for its intended application. The product range is supplemented by mechatronic components for condition monitoring.
