Take a tour through the world of Schaeffler and find out what contribution Schaeffler's solutions are making for the mobility concepts of today and tomorrow.
A revolution in bearing technology
The cage-guided needle roller bearing is one of Schaeffler’s most important innovations is now an indispensable part of bearing technology. 70 years ago, Dr.-Ing. E. h. Georg Schaeffler had the brilliant idea of equipping the needle roller bearing with a cage to guide the needle rollers. Since the patent was filed in 1950, these bearings have ensured the correct rotation in automotive and industrial applications and also plays an extremely important role when it comes to future topics like collaborative robotics and electric mobility.
