The universal inspectors
X-rays, as any child knows, are used to see inside the body. That thanks to new high-tech computed tomography the technology plays an important role in industry too is a less known fact.
Rolling through the ages
It’s one of the world’s most important inventions and has been making the everyday lives of humans easier for nearly 6,000 years: the wheel.
How do you fish something out of the ocean that you can’t see? By using clever “catching methods” for microplastics and nanoparticles.

The most important passenger on board of the jumbo jet called SOFIA is a space telescope.
Schaeffler’s intelligent mechatronic rear axle steering system ensures greater agility, driving comfort and safety with maximum energy efficiency.
Gyro Gearloose is the innovative mastermind in Disney’s Duckburg universe. As we’re seeing today, many of his inventions were definitely those of a true visionary. But read for yourself …
An innovative solution
Hybrid or all-electric systems are complementing or replacing conventional powertrains. Schaeffler has developed a modular e-axle kit enabling an extensive, universal product portfolio.
A stroke of genius
70 years ago, Dr.-Ing. E. h. Georg Schaeffler filed a patent application for the cage-guided needle roller bearing that has revolutionized bearing technology until today.
On a roll
Friction is a decelerator. Who’d be in a better position to know this than bearing specialist Schaeffler? Weight and aerodynamic drag hamper the urge of moving forward as well.
The transformation toward e-mobility doesn’t stop at the gates of the spare parts market. Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket is gearing up for the demands of tomorrow.
Pursuing a clear goal ... and discovering or inventing something totally different. This is referred to as serendipity. Legendary examples from laminated glass to Viagra.
One thing after the other
More than a hundred years ago, the moving assembly line changed the manufacturing process: an awesome success story – and one that could soon be ending.
How ideas turn into success
Ideas need people who believe in them and make them reality. Four examples described illustrate how Schaeffler manages to transfer innovative stimuli into successful projects.
Back to the track
Rail transportation had its heyday in many parts of the world up until the middle of the 20th century but was subsequently neglected. The return to the railroad confronts Brazil with major challenges.
Impeccably round and smooth
No bearing would rotate without perfectly shaped steel spheres. A manufacturing technology feat whose beginnings date back more than 130 years – and that today ensures proper rotation.
Twelve machines that have decisively driven the development of the world.
Taking an idea to success
Two pioneering examples from the Schaeffler world illustrate how complex and time-consuming development work can be: the dry dual clutch and the fully variable UniAir valve control system.
