  • Understanding Internal Clearances in Bushings and Plain Bearings

    Typically, bearing internal clearance is defined as the total distance through which one ring can be moved radially or axially in relation to the other ring under a defined measuring load. In the case of bushings, this is not so. The post Understanding Internal Clearances in Bushings and Plain Bearings appeared first on Bearings.

  • Bearings in Encoders: Part III: Mounting and Preload

    For part I click here For part II click here Bearing preload is critical in encoder spindle designs. Preload is the application of an axial load across a pair of bearings that removes the free internal clearance (or looseness) that is present in each bearing by design. In an encoder application, this preload forces the... The post Bearings in Encoders: Part III: Mounting and Preload appeared first...

  • Bearings in Encoders: Part II, Mechanical Specifications

    For part I, click here This week in the Bearings Blog, we’ll take a closer look into bearing in encoders, and mechanical specifications in particular. These specifications include runout, starting torque, running torque, maximum RPM, life versus speed/load, and shaft size. Runout Optical encoders offer mechanical stability and high precision with minimal shaft run out,... The post Bearings in Enco...

  • Bearings in Encoders: Part I

    From robotics to heavy-duty industrial machinery, optical encoders are critical components in motion control. Choosing the correct bearing for use in an encoder is an important design consideration to promote performance and operating life. This decision requires engineers to take a number of variables into account, including loads, shock, vibration, accuracy requirements and environmental conditi...
