Fafnir True High-Speed Sealed bearings (THSS) are designed for demanding machine tool spindle applications. These super-precision angular contact ball bearings combine a variety of advanced features for high speeds and accuracy as well as extended service life. The non-contact dynamic seals keep out contamination while minimizing running torque for high-speed operation. They effectively retain grease inside the bearing, making it maintenance-free compared to open, oil-lubricated bearings. Extended bearing service life reduces machine tool maintenance requirements and eliminates the costs associated with oil/mist lubrication systems.
