Astraios – the most modern, largest, and highest performing large-size bearing test rig in the world

The new test rig enables large-size bearings of up to 15 tons and measuring up to 3.5 meters such as those used in wind power applications in particular to be tested in realistic conditions using a comprehensive simulation program.

Increased reliability and cost-effectiveness for wind turbines

Astraios simulates the real loads and moments that occur in a wind turbine.

  • For rotor bearings and slewing rings
  • All rotor bearing support concepts can be tested
  • For wind turbines of up to 6 MW

The new test rig will result in further improvements in the understanding of systems as a whole, influencing factors and the interrelations in the drive trains of wind turbines. This means Schaeffler is making a major contribution to shortening development times for wind turbines as well as making the design process more reliable and increasing the cost-effectiveness and safety of these turbines.

The test stand has been named “Astraios” after a Titan in Greek mythology who was father of the four wind gods.
