    It’s easy to feel you can’t personally make a difference to help the environment – but you can. Each of us is an integral part of the bigger picture, and through our combined efforts, we can make a difference together! By respecting, protecting and preserving our natural resources, we can ensure that future generations have the same opportunities we have […]
  • Flange mounted bearings

    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 […]

    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 […]
  • Bearing shields and seals

        Ball and roller bearings are available with different types of shields and seals. These are commonly referred to as closures. Closures can extend bearing life by preventing contaminants from reaching the critical surfaces inside the bearing, and they help retain the lubricant in the bearing. Different types of closures may be supplied on the same bearing. Special designs […]

    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 their own […]

    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 […]
  • How to Measure and Choose the Correct Bearing Type

    How to Measure and Choose the Correct Bearing Type Reference Numbers The quickest way to determine which bearing you require is using the bearings reference number. Most bearings have their references numbers engraved on the bearings themselves, but these often rub off over time and so it may be necessary to measure the bearing yourself, as described below. Measuring Bearings […]

    Reducing friction in bearings is often important for efficiency, to reduce wear and to facilitate extended use at high speeds and to avoid overheating and premature failure of the bearing. Essentially, a bearing can reduce friction by virtue of its shape, by its material, or by introducing and containing a fluid between surfaces or by separating the surfaces with an […]

    Overheating is a major indicator, along with vibration and noise, of an underlying problem affecting a bearing or related components. Because normal operating temperature varies widely from one application to another, no single temperature is a reliable sign of overheating in every situation. By observing an application when it is running smoothly, a technician can establish a benchmark temperature for […]
