  • The 3 Parts of a Ball Bearing

    The 3 Parts of a Ball Bearing0

    Ball bearings are found in many consumers and commercial products. As the name suggests, they are bearings that contain balls. Ball bearings are designed to reduce friction while simultaneously supporting a load. You can find them in engine shafts, centrifugal pumps, locomotive axles and even computer hardware. While there are different types of ball bearings,

    What Are Thrust Bearings and How Do They Work?0

    Bearings are an important part of many machines. Consisting of a donut-shaped piece of material, they are designed to restrict or limit the motion of a machine’s moving parts while also reducing friction between the machine’s moving parts in the process. They are known as “bearings” because they “bear” the stress of a machine’s moving

    What Are Pillow Block Bushings?0

    Bearings are used to help machines and objects rotate. They typically consist of housing unit with a hole that supports a machine’s or object’s shaft. The shaft is placed in the bearing’s hole where it’s able to easily rotate. In turn, they reduce wear and tear on the connected machines and objects. While all bearings

    Comparing the Different Types of Bearings0

    A bearing is a common machinery component that’s used to regulate the motion and reduce the friction of a moving part. It restricts relative movement to reduce the load placed on the part and the machine. In fact, the word “bearing” is a combination of the words “to bear,” reflecting the component’s ability to bear
