FAG rolling bearings in helicopters built by Eurocopter

Many helicopter models built by Eurocopter are equipped with FAG bearings of a variety of designs. For example, our bearings are installed in the rotor head, in the rotor blade swivel joints, the swash plate, the turbine, the gearboxes and the transmission shaft.

FAG success factors:

  • Integrated designs permit a considerable weight reduction
  • Optimised inner geometry for increased reliability
  • Coatings provide protection against fretting corrosion
  • Use of wear resistant, high-alloy materials to increase the bearing life
