Spindel- und Lagerungstechnik Fraureuth GmbH (SLF) is a renowned company with 340 employees active in the development and manufacturing of rolling bearings and machine tool spindles.
The company’s successful philosophy is “quality and reliable delivery combined with flexibility and customer proximity, plus all this at a moderate price and above all, Made in Germany”.
The product range includes rolling bearings with outer diameters up to 1,600 mm, spindles and high-speed bearings (including sealed configurations), cylindrical roller bearings, self-aligning ball bearings and many more as well as product groups for machine tool spindles, which include belt-driven spindles, motor and special spindles and similar designs. In 2011, the production of ceramic bearing units (rollers) began and, in 2013, production of fully ceramic bearings was launched. Furthermore, SLF offers repair services for spindles, including spindles from other manufacturers, and for the reconditioning of rolling bearings.
To increase competitiveness and productivity, investments in production, including the construction of a 4,000 square metre production facility with adjoining office building or the upgrading and extension of a production facility for spindle manufacturing were undertaken.
