A substantial number of non-aerospace customers take advantage of our design, engineering and manufacturing capabilities for the development of specialty bearings for their demanding applications. Such application fields include turbocharger, stationary gas turbines, medical equipment and applications in the nuclear industry just to name a few. Just like in the aerospace industry, specially engineered bearings meeting the highest precision and reliability standards come into application in these demanding and sensitive environments. The special bearings developed and produced by FAG set themselves apart due to their long service life, corrosion resistance, special surface hardness, smooth and quiet operation as well as an enormous rotational speed capacity. > Our hybrid bearing systems used in medical computer tomography scanners are integrated units consisting of a large size thin section bearing with extremely low running noise, direct-drive motor and housing parts, and a high resolution position measuring system used for image reconstruction. Know-how and technology transfers from other application areas have contributed here. Thus, for example, large size Thin section bearings used for the helicopter swash plate mechanism were further developed for application in computer tomographs offering highest operational reliability, high running accuracy and low noise even at high rotational speeds. > In the development of high performance bearings for turbo chargers as used in diesel Motors for ships, railways, power stations, emergency power facilities, etc., we apply our design, materials and manufacturing technologies from the field of aerospace bearings to offer a superior performance and reliability.
