Schaeffler Bearing Data Service

We support our customers in their digitalization with machine-readable bearing product data.

Collecting bearing product data is error prone and time intensive.

We offer the Bearing Data Service alongside our rolling bearing products that ensures greater efficiency, transparency, and security in your data management.

Bearing Data Service automates and accelerates conventional business processes in the value-added chain, giving rise to completely new perspectives.


Bearing Data Service

Data management in a new dimension: Cloud-based

The Bearing Data Service [Digital Twin API] is a standardized RESTful interface to query product information from engineering, production, and logistics in a machine-readable format stored in the cloud. By calling standard REST methods, users can get information about Schaeffler products for their application. This enables our customers to integrate Schaeffler product data into their ecosystem.


The API design follows the best practices regarding security, ensured by the Schaeffler API Portal and usability. The response object is a convenient standard JSON object.
