Open the catalogue to page 10Technical features 1. GENERAL The choice of a bearing depends on many factors that need to be examined in order to obtain the most successful results at the lowest cost. In most cases the selection should be made when the overall design of the machine has been decided. Dimensional limits are then known, also the speeds and loads. At this stage the choice can be made from the many types of bearings offered from the standard ranges. The notes given in this section will generally permit one to select the most suitable bearing for each application. As for all other types of bearing, the results obtained...
Open the catalogue to page 11Technical features 3. CALCULATIONS FOR RADIAL AND THRUST BEARINGS The details following enable one to evaluate lifetime of radial bearings and thrust bearings and also combined bearings which comprise a radial and a thrust component. These are calculated separately without transforming the axial load into an equivalent radial load. The calculation for a radial or thrust bearing must take account of the following principal factors: Other features such as lubrication, sealing and alignment must be considered in order to avoid introducing unfavourable factors. The formulas for lifetime calculations...
Open the catalogue to page 12Technical features 3.1.3. Modied life Lna In conditions different from the mentioned above, a modied life Lna can be determined (in millions of revolutions) following the general formula: in which a1 and aISO are correction factors linked respectively to reliability, contamination and lubrication. Reliability correction factor a1 A reliability factor in excess of 90% may be required in certain industries elds, such as aviation, for reasons of security and to reduce the risk of a very costly immobilisation. The table below indicates the values of the correction factor a1 as a function of reliability:...
Open the catalogue to page 13Technical features 3.1.5. Oscillating motion In order to calculate the life during oscillating motion it is necessary to determine an equivalent speed n in revolutions per minute from the formula: nosc: number of oscillations "Forward and Return" per minute α: amplitude of oscillation "Forward" in degrees. However, this formula risks being in error and giving inaccurate lives for oscillations at small amplitudes. It is therefore recommended not to apply it for angles of oscillation below 15°. When the angle of oscillation is very small fretting corrosion is likely to be produced and a suitable...
Open the catalogue to page 14Technical features The resistance torque M of a bearing supporting a load P is given by the following relationships: (with Fw is the diameter of the inner raceway of the bearing) • Thrust bearing: M = fP — with dm = Eb+ Ea (Eb and Ea being the internal and external raceway diameters given in table of dimensions). The coefficient of friction f depends on a number of factors, amongst which are: • applied load • surface finish and alignment of raceways. The mean values shown below are for oil lubrication f = 0,002 T 0,003 for caged needle bearings f = 0,003 T 0,004 for full complement bearings...

Heat treatment of raceways The minimum hardness of 5864 HRC required to apply the calculations without reducing the basic capacities may be obtained with a throughhardened bearing steel or with a casehardened and tempered steel. In the latter case, the hardened case must be homogeneous and regular over the entire surface of the raceway: the case depth is the thickness between the surface and the core having a hardness value of Vickers HV1 of 550 (see Standard NF A 04 202). The minimum effective case depth of hardening...

Tolerances and form deviations The suggested tolerances for the housing is indicated in the appropriate chapters specic for every product. The suggested tolerance for deviation of form is  Variation of mean housing diameter within the length in contact with needle: 0.013 mm  Deviation from circular form: onehalf of the diameter tolerance of the housing 4.3.3. End chamfer For the most effective assembly provide a chamfer to the ends of the shaft on which...
