Bearing Terminology
Tapered Bore:
Seat the bearing onto a tapered shaft or to accommodate a tapered
sleeve which can be used to fix a bearing to a shaft.

Shields or Seals:
Between the inner and outer rings to capture lubricating grease
around the balls and prevent intrusion of contaminants

Self Aligning:
The inner ring can pivot so that the bore of the inner ring is not
aligned with that of the outer ring, this accommodates shafts which
are not perfectly aligned (concentric) with the outer ring of the
bearing.

Mechanical Engineering
Bearing Terminology

Pure Radial and Pure Axial Loads:


This indicates a bearings ability to sustain each of these kinds of
loads in isolation.

Combined Loads:
Ability to sustain a radial and an axial load at the same time.

Moment Load:
This indicates a bearings ability to support a moment at right
angles to the longitudinal shaft axis.

High Running Accuracy and High Stiffness:


Some applications require a bearing which maintains the center
of rotation of the shaft with extreme accuracy even when large
loads are applied.

Mechanical Engineering
Bearing Terminology
Locating:
If the inner ring of a bearing is axially locked to the shaft and
the outer ring is axially locked to the housing, then the bearing
is said to be locating since it prevents the shaft from moving
axially w.r.t.the housing.

Non-Locating:
If either the inner or outer ring is not axially locked, the bearing
cannot prevent the axial movement of the shaft.

Axial Displacement:
In some bearings, the inner and outer races are free to move
axially w.r.t. each other. This kind of bearing cannot be used in a
locating arrangement.

Mechanical Engineering
Deep Groove Ball Bearing General

-Simple, non-separable,
suitable for high and
even very high speeds

-Robust in operation,
requiring little
maintenance.

-Radial loads and axial


loads in both directions

Max axial load =0.25Co ~


0.5Co
Co, Basic Static Load rating, (deformation of 0.0001d)

- Enabling more and larger balls to be incorporated than


in standard deep groove ball bearings.
- Have a higher radial load carrying capacity
- Their axial load carrying capacity is small.
- Lower operate speeds.

Mechanical Engineering
Deep Groove Ball Bearing General
Double row deep groove ball bearings

- Deep uninterrupted raceways and high conformity


between the balls and raceways.

- Able to carry axial loads acting in both directions


in addition to radial loads.

- Suitable for bearing arrangements where the


load carrying capacity of a single row bearing is inadequate.

load capability of sliding
contact on flange, a
function of lubricant,
operating temp. and heat
removal.
