Rolling bearings are heavy-duty machine elements with high-precision components. In order to fully utilize their capacity, the design engineer must select the right bearing type and design and match the bearing properties to those of the mating components. Mounting and dismounting, lubrication, sealing and maintenance must also be given special attention. Appropriate means for mounting and dismounting of rolling bearings as well as utmost cleanliness and care at the assembly site are necessary in order to enable the bearings to reach a long service life.
This publication is intended to inform bearing servicemen and maintenancemen on handling, mounting and dismounting, lubrication and maintenance of rolling bearings. A special chapter deals with bearing failures and their causes. The tables in the annex specify bearing numbers, tolerances of bearings and their mating components, bearing clearance and FAG rolling bearing greases Arcanol. For information on special mounting and dismounting tools and methods and on measuring instruments, further publications are available. Bearing mounting problems beyond the scope of this publication should be referred to our Engineering Service.
