ZEN Bearings

Type and Size

ZEN has an in-house design team that plans and manufactures bearings per the customer’s specifications and requirements. While chrome and steel bearings are the standard, custom order materials, such as ceramics and special steels, may also be utilized. ZEN quality bearings may be produced in any size bore, from miniscule (i.e.: 1mm.) or extremely large (i.e.: 4.5 m.), oversized bearings and slewing rings (i.e.: military, heavy equipment, etc.). Minimum / maximum clearance margins for nominal bore diameters range from 10 mm. to 1120mm.

Quality Control and Tolerances

The bearings are visually inspected and tolerance and vibration tested. They undergo a radial assessment, noise frequency analysis, Rockwell testing, and laser marking before the bearings are sealed, boxed, and shipped to the supplier for sale / distribution.

Zen bearings are manufactured to DIN- and ISO-certified quality control standards that regulate precision bearing integrity throughout the industry. The tighter the tolerance range is, the greater the accuracy of shaft rotation and higher-speed capability. Smoothness of the rolling contact surfaces, material grades, and ball precision are not included in DIN / ISO standards.

Seals and Shields

The proper seal for the intended application is key to performance. Seals and shield may be metal, rubber, PTFE, or viton, used in non-, low-, or high-friction environments. They may also be required to help protect against contaminants or must be able to be easily lubed.

Lubricants and Greases

Lubricants and greases offer protection at any temperature. Diester, mineral, synthetic, ester, fluorinated, and silicon oils are applied to protect against low and high temps, general purpose, low and high speeds, speed-alternator, chemical solvent resistant, anti-rust, and low noise.

Cages

Standard and custom cages accommodate speed, strength and weight loading requirements. They may be produced in a variety of selected materials:

• Crown Cage – Light weight, smooth, low friction
• Ribbon Cage – Standard cage, durability
