Component description, application environment, function
PAS-PU rollers from faigle have been used for decades wherever a long service life is required under high loads and under extreme operating conditions. In most applications the rollers go unnoticed, as they deliver the required performance for many years without any need for maintenance at all - and this often 24/7. As well as a decades-long service life, operators of conveying systems also demand quiet operation and zero maintenance for their delicate goods.
Design, choice of material, manufacturing technique
The complexity of the requirements is such that close cooperation is required with the design engineers from faigle during the design and dimensioning of the rollers. With their experience, they are able to help the customers draw up the requirement profile and develop the optimum design version. If necessary, the rollers can also be put through their paces in intensive test in the laboratory and on our roller test benches. The material PAS-PU stands out particularly thanks to its high tear propagation resistance, excellent mechanical properties and high resistance to hydrolysis. faigle uses ball bearings made by selected ball bearing manufacturers who have been carefully vetted by faigle. In addition, faigle also has access to state-of-the-art ball bearing test facilities in order to monitor their quality.
