our mission
    • “German precision“
    • With globalisation, traditionally national production sites have moved all over the globe. German market leaders of all sorts of fields now produce their goods in many countries. KFB Clarfeld Germany manufactures ist ball- and roller bearings, chains and sprocket wheels in highly qualified locations worldwide. Due to globalisation and ist concomitant shifts in the value-chain, the quality of the production must be effectively safeguarded. Hence, KFB Clarfeld Germany operates according to ISO standard 9001:2015. Every member of our staff sees to it that the products and services with the quality seal “German Precision“ are provided to our customers and partners at all times.


The divers fields of applicationof our products

Our wide range of ball bearings, roller bearings, chains and sprocket wheels is used for a wide variety of machinery and branches of industry. For details, please consult the menu item “Fields of Application“


Bearings in these applications are subjected to very severe operating conditions. The shaking actions of vibrating equipment subjects the bearings to very heavy loads, including impact loads. Additional load is created by higher “g” forces generated by acceleration in the application. Bearings are higher speed operated. Furthermore, these kind of bearings are developed to increase the lifetime of bearings in contaminated environments. KFB designs special spherical roller bearings – MAC4F80 – to operate under severe conditions. Special KFB spherical roller bearings for vibrating equipment are available in 22300 and 23300 series. The clearance is similar to C4, but the lower third of C4 range is eliminated for better control of the bearing clearance after mounting.

In the mining sector severe operating and environmental conditions require extremely robust bearings. Bearings for mining industry are used for bucket wheel excavators, draglines, conveyor belts, trucks, stackers, transport equipment, loaders, longwall shearers and hoists. The mining industries use many types of bearings: roller bearings, deep groove ball bearings, spherical roller bearings and tapered roller bearings.


Require high precision, large rated moving load, and high maximum rotation speed. By adopting the new technology of material processing, KFB has successfully manufactured bearings of long service life that are highly fatigue resistant and impact resistant. The types of bearings made by KFB for the metallurgical roller mills are: split bearings; unit rollers; support roller bearings; single row, double row, three row, four row cylindrical roller bearings, fully-loaded cylindrical roller bearings, spherical roller bearings.


Dirt, moisture, abrasion and high mechanical loads: driving elements in agricultural machinery and the associated mounted implements are subject to severe strain. The bearings used also have to be tailored to these conditions. It is possible to increase the drive systems’ useful life by selecting the ideal bearings or using customised engineering.


KFB Clarfeld Germany specialises in supplying automotive bearings with high quality and related parts to OE specification. We offer a wide range covering all popular bearings in order to support components for the majority of vehicles on the road today.
tensioner bearings


Power transmission products is a product line that provides sprockets and chains. Required in virtually every industry, power transmission components enable processes to run by connecting moving parts in machinery.

The KFB precision steel roller chain is a highly efficient and versatile means of transmitting mechanical power, which, in the field of industrial and agricultural applications, has almost completely superseded all other types of chains previously used.
