  • Bearing Interference Fit
    When a ball bearing is used, it is not used alone. It is likely to be used on a shaft or in a housing bore by an Interference Fit. The Interference Fit is described as a value of tightness between the shaft and bearing bore or the housing bore and bearing outside diameter.
  • Preventing Rust from Building on a Primary Pivot Ball Bearing
    Issue: Rust generated on a bearing in a hinge assembly prevents servicing. The bearing and housing sits within an air-conditioning unit above a door. Condensation from the AC leaks into the bearing and the cup that holds it. Rust generated overtime fuses the shaft and the cup, which prevents
  • Low Cost Automation Tutorial: Bearing Mounting/Retaining Method
    A bearing (rolling ball bearing type) needs to be retained in three directions, radial, axial, and circumferential in relation to it's housing and a shaft. The radial and circumferential direction retention is mainly based on a concern on fit tolerance selection...
  • Talk About Shaft and Housing Fits and Roundness
    When ball bearings have been processed with CSL, the CSL fills the entire space between the inner and outer race for the width of the bearing. It will mold around the cage and form to the geometry of that space. Since the graphite is a non-flexible solid, its roundness is determined
  • Segmented bearings overcome limitations in conventional geometry
    , they think of traditional ball-bushing bearings. However, recent expansions into segment-bearing technology address applications where conventional ball-bushing or other rolling-element bearings never dared to go. Segmented bearings have a ball retainer assembled from several self-contained ball
  • MAXAM Custom-Engineered Bearings
    The custom-engineered MAXAM® bearing from McNeil Industries is designed to replace plane, roller, ball and tapered bearings, which fail because of load, impact, shock, contamination, hostile environments and difficulty of lubrication. MAXAM components are designed to fit existing housing
  • Segmented bearings increase design flexibility and shorten cycle times
    just to replace an inexpensive bearing. The features in segmented bearings overcome these hurdles. The bearings have a ball retainer assembled from several self-contained ball-retainer segments. Each segment includes at least one ball track with a load-bearing portion and a return portion
  • OEMs look to distributors for better service
    as assembly and warranty information. Case in point: A small OEM that builds rope sheaves used in paper-mill dryer sections had recently changed a bearing spec from two single-row, deep-groove ball bearings to a double-row, angular-contact ball bearing. The update looked great on paper, but end users
