LOAD IS A BIG FAC­TOR

Car (South Africa) - - TECH -

There are many types of roller bear­ings to suit a mul­ti­tude of ap­pli­ca­tions and most bear­ing sup­pli­ers pro­pose an in-depth se­lec­tion process con­sid­er­ing all pa­ram­e­ters. The main rea­son for these dif­fer­ent types of bear­ings is the vari­ance in load re­quire­ments. There can be pure ax­ial or ra­dial loads or a com­bi­na­tion of the two (di­a­grams four and five). This in­flu­ences the re­quired bear­ing type (rolling el­e­ment) and con­tact an­gle formed be­tween the rolling el­e­ments and in­ner and outer rings.
