Most Common Uses of Locking-Nuts

Blog | December 3rd, 2015

Energy losses rise from the frame of a motor as it spins on a shaft. Energetic pulses oscillate, causing parts to vibrate and fasteners to loosen. Thankfully, locking-nuts anchor bearings and reinforce fastening mechanisms, placing a special gripping component within the nut to anchor the parts. Resisting Vibrational Loosening Forces  Electric motors generate vibrations. Pumps […]

What Are Flanged Ball Bearings?

Blog | November 9th, 2015

The dictionary definition of the term flange describes a physical ridge or lip, a rim or collar that projects from a rolled edge. It grants a component extra strength and, at least in the case of pipes, provides a fastening plate that enables the two sections to be bound together. It’s a little different with […]

What Are The Most Common Types of Bearings?

Blog | October 28th, 2015

The general public can be forgiven for believing that the ball bearing is the only bearing in use today. It’s the go-to friction reducer, after all, the prevalent form taken by radial motion mechanics because the arrangement of two circular rails (races) and the smoothly rolling balls sandwiched between these rings is ingeniously efficient. Nevertheless, […]

What Are Angular Thrust Ball Bearings?

Blog | September 10th, 2015

A ball bearing is comprised of a number of friction-reducing hard balls that run in grooves in two concentric ring surfaces, which is mounted on a rotating shaft. Its primary purpose is to reduce the effect of the rotational friction generated by the rubbing action, so heat produced by the high-speed contact is lessened. Ball […]

Importance of Ball Bearings in Automotive Parts

Blog | August 20th, 2015

Cars and trucks are the most common moving machine on the globe. They’re found everywhere, which makes them the ideal candidates to use as a case study for ball bearings. On top of the notion that automobiles are ubiquitous, they’re arguably the first mass of working parts you think of when envisaging something that depends […]

Basic Information On How Ball Bearings Work

Blog | August 14th, 2015

Friction is incurred when two separate parts make contact and slide against each other. The job of a ball bearing is to neutralize the friction generated by this rubbing action and therefore remove the heat produced by high-speed contact. In olden times, when a vendor was taking produce to market, he’d rub a little meat […]

Stainless Steel Bearings and Their Various Applications

Blog | July 30th, 2015

It is one thing to describe the parts of a ball bearing and define how these components lock together, but it’s another altogether to open the door to the multitude of applications where these revolutionary friction-killers are found. It’s not that these are rare bearings. In fact, the issue is just the opposite. The trapped […]
