    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 […]

      The four-point-contact ball bearing The four-point-contact ball bearing is a single row angular contact bearings designed to handle two-directional axial loading. These bearings require a minimum amount of space and can be custom designed to meet our customer’s unique loading parameters. And the four-point-contact ball bearings can carry either pure axial loading or combined loading provided the axial component […]

    Angular contact bearings An angular contact ball bearing uses axially asymmetric races. An axial load passes in a straight line through the bearing, whereas a radial load takes an oblique path that tends to want to separate the races axially. So, the angle of contact on the inner race is the same as that on the outer race. Angular contact […]

    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 […]

    Bearings are used to support the rotating components (like shafts) and bear the load which the rotating components carry. Principally, it has four major components: Outer ring: This fit tightly inside the outer structure which is generally not moving e.g. Pump/Motor Casing Inner ring: This ring fits tightly on the shaft and rotates with it. Balls: These are the components […]

    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 […]

      First of all, lubrication is very crucial to the lifespan and performance of bearings. You need to select a proper lubrication system and high-quality lubricant. Lubricant oil film will separate the contact oil film surfaces caused by loading and provide proof against corrosion and abrasion. Therefore, lubrication oil film cannot be missing for normal running of all rotating and […]
