FAG is a global manufacturer of bearings and is one of the main brands of the Schaeffler Group which specialises in manufacturing products for the automotive, industrial and aerospace sectors. FAG was established in 1883 by Friedrich Fischer who designed a ball mill for the precision manufacture of steel balls. The invention of the mill is thought to be the foundation for the roller bearing industry and is the reason why FAG is considered to be the pioneer of the roller bearing industry.
With around 40,000 volume-produced products available in the catalogue and more than 60 industrial sectors supported FAG is a driving force behind the manufacture and production of high-quality rolling bearings, spherical plain bearings, plain bearings and linear products as part of the Schaeffler Group.
To help ensure the correct mounting of bearings there is also Mounting Manager which is a computer program and user-friendly aid for ensuring the correct mounting of bearings. For calculating and modelling then BEARINX® software can be used to model and calculate bearings, complex shafts and even complete gearbox systems.
In 2001 FAG was taken over by Schaeffler Group which also owns INA, together INA and FAG became the world’s second largest rolling bearing manufacturer. In 2006 FAG and INA are integrated within the Schaeffler Group and the first joint main catalogue of both brands is published that represents around 40,000 standard products.
