1. Handle with care. Never pound directly on a bearing or ring. If a bearing is dropped, it is best not to install it. Store bearings horizontally in a dry place in their original unopened package and never place bearings on a dirty surface; … [Read more...] about Installation tips for reliable bearing operation
On this Technology Tuesdays Podcast for 2/24/15, I speak with Joe Conyers, senior consulting engineer for training and development at SKF Training Solutions. We discuss the common bearing lubrication mistakes users tend to make and how engineers are … [Read more...] about Technology Tuesdays Podcast: How to idiot proof bearing lubrication
Spherical roller thrust bearings are similar in purpose to ball thrust bearings in that they are designed to handle loads primarily in one direction. But unlike their ball-based cousins, the cylindrical design of the roller thrust bearing means they … [Read more...] about What do you know about Spherical Roller Thrust Bearings?
When you need to reduce friction between two moving parts but have very limited space to do so, a needle roller bearing may just be what you're looking for. A needle roller bearing is a roller bearing with rollers whose length are at least four times … [Read more...] about What do you know about Needle Roller Bearings?
Despite what their name may imply, spherical roller bearings are not truly spherical in shape. The rolling elements of spherical roller bearings are mainly cylindrical in shape, but have a profile that makes them appear like cylinders that have been … [Read more...] about What do you know about Spherical Roller Bearings?
Rolling element bearings are perhaps the most common form of bearing and operate by carrying a load by placing rolling elements, such as balls or rollers, in between two rings, known as races. A common type of rolling bearing is the cylindrical … [Read more...] about What do you know about Cylindrical Roller Bearings?
Tapered roller bearings feature tapered inner and outer ring raceways with tapered rollers arranged between them, angled so the surface of the rollers converge at the axis of the bearing. These bearings are unique in that, unlike most bearings that … [Read more...] about What do you know about Tapered Roller Bearings?
A thrust ball bearing is a specific type of rotary ball bearing designed to handle light to moderate axial loads only. They generally consist of two, possibly grooved, raceways and a set of caged ball bearings. Unlike roller thrust bearings, thrust … [Read more...] about What do you know about Ball Thrust Bearings?
A sensor bearing equipped with an electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) filter offers protection against potential damage to the bearing’s sensitive electronics from power surges or electric discharges, most notably in AC electric motor applications. … [Read more...] about SKF introduces sensor bearing with EMC filter
