News from Schneeberger Inc.


Schneeberger, Inc is the authorized North American distributor of Sferax ball bearings and shafts. Sferax is a Swiss manufacturer of high precision and high-quality linear ball bearings, seals, pillow blocks and shafts and have been doing so for over 50 years! They are a perfect compliment to the Schneeberger linear motion portfolio. All products are offered in both inch and metric sizes in a variety of precision grades in both open and closed configurations. Sferax bearings are completely interchangeable with all industry standard linear bearings. All bearings are manufactured from a solid 52100 bearing steel outer sleeve with integral ground and lapped load tracks. 6 ball rows increase bearing capacity by as much as 45% and service life by as much as 200%. Precision milled inner sleeves, made of low friction brass, reduces the sliding friction of the balls in the return load free track by as much as 50%, resulting in a smooth and quiet operation! Our closed ball bearings work within a continuous duty operation in temperature ranges of -30°C (-22°F) to 80°C (176°F). Our open ball bearings are rated for continuous operating temperatures from -60°C (-76°F) to 180°C (356°F). Operating the bearings outside of these ranges will reduce service life of the bearing. Sferax shafts are also available in a variety of inch and metric lengths. All standard shafts are manufactured from 52100 bearings steel and our stainless steels shafts are made from 440C material. These shafts can come in a maximum length of 1500mm or 60 inches. Many custom configurations are also available, and we would be happy to look at your requirements to see how we might best fit your needs!
