Choose the Correct Bearings for Your Application

Selecting the correct bearings can be at times tricky, because there are so many types to choose from. These range from angular-contact ball bearings to deep-groove ball bearings and even roller bearings, to name only a few of them. How do you know which bearings will work best with your intended application? There are a few things that will dictate which type of bearings to use in specific instances.

The first thing to keep in mind when selecting a bearing is the weight and the nature of the load. Also take into account what the required life expectancy of the bearing is, as well as the speed of the shaft and the type of environment in which the bearing will need to work. When taking all these factors into account, you will find that ball bearings are typically suited for use in small machines that run at high speeds. Roller bearings, on the other hand, are typically suited for machinery that need to operate under heavy loads.

Do Not Underestimate the Importance of Quality Bearings

Of course, you could know exactly what type of bearings you need for a particular application, but if you choose a poor quality bearing, it doesn’t matter if it is the right type of bearing or not. Inferior quality bearings will lead to a shorter lifespan that will ultimately negatively impact your operations, and you certainly do not want to have to replace your bearings constantly. Instead, work with a reputable supplier who is willing and able to back up their products and the quality of their workmanship and guarantee a longer-than-average lifespan for their products. It is one of the best ways to maximise your buying power and to ensure operational continuity.
