+Why do bearings have 3 digits?

Bearings have 3 digits because they are made to a standard. This means that every bearing made to that type of standard will have the same dimensions. This allows them to fit in many different...  Read More

+What is bearing friction?

Bearing friction is the force that resists the relative motion between the surfaces of two contacting bodies. Bearing friction is always present to some degree, but it can be reduced by various...  Read More

+What is bearing coefficient?

The bearing coefficient is a dimensionless number that describes the relative ability of two surfaces to slide against each other. The coefficient is usually referred to as the coefficient of...  Read More

+What is the minimum bearing life?

The minimum bearing life is the amount of time that a bearing can be used without replacement. The minimum bearing life is usually determined by the manufacturer, who can determine how much wear...  Read More

+Advantages of Bearing Materials

Bearing materials are used in all types of mechanical devices such as electric motors, generators, pumps and fans. The main purpose of bearings is to reduce friction, wear and corrosion. They...  Read More
