Easy to Fit and Often Maintenance-free: Bearing Systems for Tillage Machines and Seeders
bearing Seals, whereas during the spring and fall, moisture is a real challenge for farmers. Heavy soils test the mechanical strength of all machine parts to the limit. Constant vibrations and high shocks are loads that occur throughout the entire year. This is why the bearing supports in tillage machines have to be particularly robust. Here, bearings are often combined with flanged housings that simplify assembly. One example are plow discs, the inclined position of which results in transverse forces and bending moments as well as radial loads.

A Clever Bearing Solution for Changing Plow Discs Quickly
Agricultural engineering involves a wide range of machines, equipment and implements. This ranges from tillage machines, Tractors, tedders and balers to powerful harvesting equipment such as forage harvesters or combine harvesters. Even if the machines are very different, the operating conditions are always harsh. In summer, dust and Sand place high demands on the
The Schaeffler Group’s application engineers have developed an innovative system solution for the heavy bearing supports in plow discs. These bearing supports only have to be screwed onto the plow disc and the machine frame. This means that it takes only a few minutes to change the plow discs. The unit is also maintenance-free.
