Schaeffler is one of the world’s leading rolling bearing manufacturers and has been producing bearings for wind turbines for over 30 years. We offer the right solution for every bearing position and a holistic concept that further increases the reliability of the rolling bearings in wind turbines: The Schaeffler Wind Power Standard (WPOS).
In order to ensure that the high standards of the sector are maintained, we work closely with customers and suppliers across the entire process chain all the way up to volume production. In this way, we work together to develop the optimum solution for every bearing position – from the rotor shaft to the gearbox, generator, nacelle, and blade adjustment system. Customer requirements have already been taken into account down to the finest detail in the project planning phase. Sophisticated simulation and calculation methods support the selection of bearings and documentation. And the test phase uses Schaeffler’s ASTRAIOS – one of the most modern and powerful large-size bearing test rigs in the world. There, bearings of up to 15 metric tons and an outside diameter of 3.5 meters can be tested under realistic conditions. Special rolling bearing greases and a wide range of services and products for maintenance and equipment condition monitoring round out our program. The follow-up costs for maintenance can thus be reduced and the availability of wind turbines can be increased.
