Ready to fit repair solution for truck and trailer wheel bearings
The majority of wheel bearing repairs for trucks, trailers and buses are still made using conventional tapered roller bearings in cumbersome and time-consuming labor steps associated with numerous sources of error.
Schaeffler with its brand FAG has been OE supplier to nearly all global truck and axle manufacturers for decades. For aftermarket workshops we are now offering a completely new and unique repair solution for damaged wheel hubs.
FAG SmartSET consists of two pre-assembled bearing units (inboard/outboard), special tools and a non-verbal fitting instruction.
Bearing units are ready to fit, lifetime lubricated and factory pre-set. The new pushfit bearing design is self -centering and allows easy fitting to the axle stub without jamming.
- Quicker – workshops save up to two hours labor when doing brake services in the future. During the service the bearing units will remain inside the wheel hub whilst the brakes are being replaced.
- More efficient – pre-setting of tapered rollers and pushfit clearance make hub repair a one man job.
- More practical – ready to fit SmartSET simplifies the repair. On-site greasing becomes obsolete as all bearings come factory pre-lubricated with special heavy duty grease.
- Smarter – SmartSET saves time and cost and facilitates the hub repair.
