Bearing Failure Analysis

The accurate diagnosis of a bearing failure is imperative to prevent repeated failures and their additional expenses. While performing failure analysis is commonly left to outside vendors, the actual collecting of information can make a great difference in correctly diagnosing bearing failure.

Vendor Catalogs

We carry precision bearings from a number of excellent vendors. Simply download any one of the bearing vendor catalogs here to find the right product and product line. Choose from a range of precision ball bearings, mounted units, linear motion bearings and more.

Technical Solutions and Conversion Charts

Our conversion charts and technical definitions are printable, downloadable and provide the details you’ll need to choose the right precision bearing for your application.


Emerson Bearing is happy to provide bearing unit interchange tables for the products we sell. You can download tables for almost any product or application. Contact us (link to contact page) with any questions!
