   Application areas of bearings

  The commonly used bearings in motorcycles and automobiles are starter motor bearings, crankshaft bearings, gearbox bearings, and wheel hub bearings. According to the operating conditions of the starter motor, specific requirements are put forward for the bearing’s ability to withstand intermittent impact loads. At the same time, it must have good dust-proof performance and select a reasonable internal bearing clearance. The wheel hub bearing has a high speed, and a large force, which requires suitable grease, and the interior design of the license is relatively large, which puts forward higher requirements on the production of raw materials. The force and working conditions of automobile bearings are more complicated than those of motorcycles. For example, the direction of the automobile condensing fan motor should consider the continuous working condition of the engine under high-temperature conditions and so on.

  In garden tools represented by lawnmowers, gearboxes have extremely high requirements for the sealing of the bearings, neither allowing the grease in the box to penetrate the bearings nor leak the oil. Due to the higher pressure in the gearbox, the bearing must also have a particular pressure relief function. 

  In-office automation tools, the office environment requires bearings to have good features such as low noise, high-temperature resistance, and low starting torque. The copier also puts forward higher requirements on the electrical conductivity of the bearing. Because these bearings are usually miniature bearings, and most are thin-walled series. Some require flanged design; higher requirements are placed on the manufacturing process and equipment accuracy.

In medical equipment, low rotational torque, low noise, and good flexibility are the basic requirements for bearings, the safety characteristics of bearing materials, the safety characteristics of bearing grease, the anti-rust performance of bearings, and the service life of bearings are all under consideration, in the range.

Bearings for car engines

   In addition to the industries mentioned above introduced by TFL BEARINGS, in industrial motors, the bearings used are usually required to withstand heavy loads, and the bearing environment is relatively harsh. Bearings in engines such as household appliances such as air conditioners and washing machines have stringent requirements for low noise and high rotation accuracy.

Bearing type

   Sliding bearing

  The sliding bearing has no inner and outer rings or rolling elements and is generally made of wear-resistant materials. Commonly used in low speed, light load, lubricating oil, and mechanical rotating parts that are difficult to maintain

   articulated bearing

  The sliding contact surface of the joint bearing is spherical, which is mainly suitable for swing motion, tilt motion, and rotation motion.

   rolling bearing

  According to the load direction or nominal contact angle, rolling bearings are divided into radial bearings and thrust bearings according to the load direction or slight contact angle they can bear. Radial contact bearings are radial bearings with a bit of contact angle of 0, and radial, angular contact bearings are radial bearings with a nominal contact angle greater than 0 to 45. Axial contact bearings are thrust bearings with a nominal contact angle of 90, and thrust angular contact bearings are thrust bearings with a nominal contact angle of more than 45 but less than 90.

   The above is an introduction to the application fields and requirements of bearings. I believe it will be of some help to you. If you have better suggestions or needs, please email us.
