ball bearing mounting techniques

ball bearing mounting techniques

hi friends!!!
 iwant some information on the various ways in which ball bearings are mounted; specifically, the methods of backing them, the different mouning arrangements, the fillet radius, shaft and housing shoulders, the ways in which setting is acheived etc..ex. using spacers, endplates...

pls don't write abt the steps in actual mounting and dismounting.that is not needed..

RE: ball bearing mounting techniques

Retaining rings are very versatile and useful for mounting and retaining ball bearings.

As far as pre-loads, fillets of shoulders etc. the manufacturer usually has recommended standards.

Retaining rings such as those made by Rotor Clip can be used in housing as spacers between bearings and in housing to retain bearing in position.  They can be used on shafts that are inserted in bearings which can serve to keep shaft and or bearings located.

Using Rotor Clip as an example: the groove widths, tolerances, edge margins,and loads are supplied for a given retaining ring.

Retaining rings - often called Snap rings - are available in many configurations designed for various applications.

We use tens of thousands of ball bearings annually and almost always we use one or more design of retaining ring with the ball bearing.
