The inner and outer bearings found at each wheel cushion the contact between the wheel and the spindle it sits on. They're packed with grease to prevent wear from the friction produced by the turning wheels.
All FAG wheel bearings are maintenance free and have been designed for the entire life of the vehicle. FAG can choose from a wide range of options to find the right technical solution for your specific application. Innovative products conquer the market.
Wheel bearings – 2nd generation
Wheel bearings – 2.1 generation
This combines the economy of a 1st Generation wheel bearing design with the advantages of orbital forming. The wheel bearing unit is secured in the knuckle with an innovative snap ring providing the axial retention of the bearing outer ring.
Wheel bearings – 3rd generation
A highly integrated unit with flanges for the brake disc, wheel and knuckle which allow the highest possible running accuracy. Integrated speed encoders generate the signals required for steering the vehicle (ABS/ESP). The bearing clamping force is applied and controlled by FAG via an orbitally formed shoulder.
