Bearing Types and Classifications

Ball Bearings Ball bearings are mechanical assemblies made up of rolling spherical parts held together by circular inner and outer races. They support rotating shafts while also reducing friction between shafts and fixed machine parts. Ball bearings are generally...

What are the most common causes of bearing failures

Bearings are among the most important components in the vast majority of machines, and their carrying capacity and reliability are subjected to stringent requirements. As a result, it is natural that rolling bearings have come to play such an important role and that...

External Gear Slewing Bearing Ring

External Gear Slewing Bearing Ring What makes this piece different, is a rotational rolling-element bearing that typically supports a heavy but slow-turning or slow-oscillating load, often a horizontal platform such as a conventional crane, or the wind-facing platform...
What are cam follower bearings?

What are cam follower bearings?

A cam follower bearing is a roller or needle bearing that is specifically designed to follow cams or tracks.  These bearings are used in linear motion systems including transfer lines, conveyor systems, and other industrial machinery.  Cam follower bearing can...
