Fafnir bearings are made by the Torrington Company. The
Torrington Company produces a
broad range of precision fafnir ball bearings, wide inner ring Fafnir ball bearings and housed
units for standard industrial applications and specialized uses. These Fafnir bearings are sold
under the Fafnir brand to original equipment manufacturers and industrial distributors
worldwide. Major markets for Fafnir bearings include Fafnir aircraft bearings, construction
and agriculture, machine tool, and general industry. Call Bearing Kinetics for your
Fafnir bearings are produced in two basic designs
for the exacting demands of commercial
and military aircraft. They are specifically designed to meet requirements of extreme temperature, low
torque, high loads, misalignment and low mass. Fafnir control bearings generally consist of an inner
and outer ring with a complement of precision balls, a seal or shield and, in some cases, a cage or separator. These bearings are typically used in flight control surfaces. The full-complement type is intended for
applications requiring high loads and oscillating motion. The cage-type is intended for low torque, lighter
loads, intermittent rotation and long life. Fafnir control bearings are available with either standard or precision tolerances. Torrington is a qualified producer of control bearings as specified under MIL-B-7949.
Fafnir rod end bearings are sealed unit
assemblies with an integral shank for mounting. A spherical
outer raceway and either a double row of balls or a single row of spherical rollers permit up to ±10° of
misalignment between the inner ring and outer ring (banjo). Shanks can be supplied with internal or
external threads, hollow or solid. Torrington is a qualified producer of rod end bearings as specified
under MIL-B-6039 and NAS standards.
Fafnir angular contact ball bearings are designed for
combination radial and axial
loading. Single-row bearings have high thrust capacity in one direction. Some
single-row bearings are specifically designed for duplex mounting in sets for maximum performance. Double-row Conrad bearings can accommodate thrust in both directions.
The special geometry of angular contact bearing raceways and shoulders creates
ball contact angles that support higher axial loads. Different designs offer contact
angles ranging from 20° to 40°. Higher angles provide more axial load capacity for
longer service life operating under axial and radial loads.
Fafnir radial ball bearings use a versatile design that permits relatively
high-speed operation under
a range of load conditions. Bearings consist of an inner and outer ring with a cage containing a
complement of precision balls. The standard Conrad-type bearing has a deep-groove construction
capable of handling radial and axial loads from either direction. The maximum-capacity type
supports primarily radial loading.
An extremely wide variety of sizes is available in extra-light to heavy
series. Various shield
and seal configurations help protect internal bearing components and retain lubricants.
