    Wheel bearings come in a variety of designs. Many early designs, were made to be serviceable. Today most are either bolt-in or integral in design. Neither requires routine maintenance, but when they fail, learning the reason is important. Symptoms of a bad wheel bearing When a wheel bearing fails, the most common symptom is a roaring noise that increases with […]

      Have you ever wondered what the difference was between roller bearings and ball bearings? At first glance they may not seem all that different. However, these seemingly similar style bearings have very different uses. We’re showing you how bearings work, and what the differences are between these engineering gems. How Bearings Work In general, bearings are all composed of […]

        BEARING CLEARANCE   Radial Internal Clearance The radial internal clearance of a ball bearing affects life, noise, vibration and heat generation.  It is important to select the appropriate internal clearance for each application. The three types of internal clearance of a ball bearing are radial clearance, axial clearance and moment clearance. Radial internal clearance decreases when a ball […]

    Flange mounted bearings are used when the shaft axis is perpendicular to the bearing mounting surface.  They incorporate a sealed bearing that is preassembled into a flanged housing.  The housing contains a precision ground surface perpendicular to the bearing axis and two, three or four mounting holes, depending on the style.  The bearing can be unbolted and removed, which makes […]
  • Self-aligning ball bearing

      Self-aligning ball bearing this type of ball bearing is recommended when alignment of the shaft and housing is difficult and the shaft may flex. The outer ring has a spherical raceway and its center of curvature coincides with that of the bearing; therefore, the axis of the inner ring, balls and cage can deflect to some extent around the […]

    Thrust bearings have rolling elements which primarily support the axial loads of rotating devices. Several styles of bearings are available in thrust configurations. Whereas radial-load bearings locate ball or roller races on the opposing inner and outer bearing rings, most thrust bearings have raceways machined into the faces of mating rings. This arrangement supports a load that is parallel to […]

    V-RING SEAL  The function of a v ring seal, or v ring, is to snap over a rotating shaft and act as a centrifugal seal acting against the bearing face and throwing dirt and contaminants away from the bearing area, which will probably contain the primary sealing elements. V seals are not designed to seal against fluids or pressure differentials in […]

    Bearing installation is as important as bearing design and cleanliness. Improper installation can damage the bearing assembly and can cause brinelling of the bearing, which can result in bearing vibration, noise, and reduced life. listed below are some tips that will help prevent incorrect installation and extend bearing life   Do not remove the bearing from its packaging until you […]
  • Bearing load capacity

    There are two load capacity specifications for recirculating linear guides and ball screws—static load capacity and dynamic load capacity. Most engineers are familiar with dynamic load capacity, since this is the value used to calculate bearing life. But it’s also important to consider the component’s static load capacity in order to avoid premature bearing failure. Here’s a quick look at each specification […]
