Bearings literally make the world go round. They are called “bearings” because they “bear” the stress of an application’s moving parts.
The two major bearing classifications are radial bearings and axial bearings. Radial bearings create a force that radiates out from the axis or is perpendicular to the axis. When axial bearings are in use the f... Read more...More Product Announcements from Torque Transmission
A bearing allows relative motion between two surfaces with minimal friction.
In a rolling element bearing, the primary motion is a rolling motion using a ball or roller. There is direct contact between the ball/roller and the inner and outer surfaces (races).
In a fluid film bearing, the relative motion between the two surfaces is a sliding motion on... Read more...More Product Announcements from Waukesha Bearings
Turbine and generator manufacturers are often confronted with issues related to the project’s specific characteristics, which influences the performance of the bearings used. In fact, some of these working conditions are a great challenge to the bearing manufacturer.
Turbine or generator design changes and consequently new requirements for bearings make a close partnership b... Read more...More Product Announcements from Miba Industrial Bearings
Thrust bearings are a specific type of rotary bearing that permits rotation between parts. Thrust bearing designs are engineered to support a predominately axial load.
Torque Transmission's cost-saving thrust bearing designs incorporate the recognized value of a molded nylon retainer, with hardened grade steel balls and washers. By combining high-grade balls with the self-lubricat... Read more...More Product Announcements from Torque Transmission
Two common construction materials are carbon steel and stainless steel for bearings. Bearings are common machine elements that are designed to reduce the friction between moving parts and constrain motion to only the desired motion. Ball bearings and roller bearings reduce sliding friction by using balls within the outer and inner ring of the bearing. Because the purpose of a bearing is...
