Bearings from A to Z

mechanical drawing detail and design toolsHosted by Emerson Bearings President Steve Katz and originally aired on February 16, 2016, our inaugural webinar ranges from basic bearing information to specific details for orders and applications for specific projects. Whether you are curious about the origin of bearings or need to know more about which materials are the best fit for your custom project specifications, the webinar has you covered. The webinar discusses:

  • The Basics — Learn the history and development of bearings, including some surprising facts (for example, the numbering classification system for bearings was developed over 100 years ago and is still in use today). Other essential information includes materials, components, types, loads, and speed by different style.

  • Internal Clearance — Learn how internal clearance, one of the most important aspects of bearing systems, influences the proper handling and lifetime of bearings. Proper internal clearance ensures full service life and prevents premature failure.

  • ABEC Class — The Annual Bearing Engineers’ Committee (ABEC) scale is used to classify the varying tolerances of different types of bearings. Higher grades mean tighter precision, but not every applications benefits from the highest ABEC grades. Learn more about using ABEC ratings to find the optimal bearing products for your specification.

  • Cleanliness — Want to know one of the most common, tell-tale signs that bearings have not been handled properly? Fingerprints. Always wear gloves when handling bearings to keep contaminants away — even the oils and moisture found on human skin. Learn about other important cleanliness techniques in the webinar.

  • Handling and Mounting — Find a comprehensive list of dos and don’ts for the proper handling and mounting of bearings; following these guidelines will keep bearings in excellent shape and limit early failure.

  • Greasing and Lubrication — Lubrication is an essential element of keeping bearings working at their best. Learn how to utilize the optimal levels of grease and lubricants to maximize efficiency and performance while avoiding the dangers of using excessive or insufficient lubrication.
