"X-life" is a Schaeffler quality label which is used in addition to the product brands.
X-life is the quality label for products of the brands FAG and INA with extra-high performance features. They are characterized by higher dynamic load ratings, and therefore an extended rating life and longer operating time as compared with conventional products.
This is achieved by optimizing internal bearing design and using state-of-the art manufacturing technologies that produce better and more uniform contact surfaces and thus guarantee an optimized load distribution within the bearing.
They provide new possibilities for design and engineering:
Under the same load and in the same mounting space, X-life bearings have a longer rating life, maintenance intervals can be extended.
Likewise, X-life bearings allow higher loads in the same mounting space and over the same rating life.
With both rating life and load unchanged, X-life bearings allow for a performance densification, an optimized mounting space and a weight reduction.
Thereby, X-life bearings contribute significantly to improve the overall profitability of the application with regards to total cost of ownership.
