Selecting rolling bearings for industrial gearboxes

The process of selecting bearings for all gear box types is set to become more straightforward, structured and transparent with the launch of a new free publication - Rolling Bearings for Industrial Gearboxes - from NSK. The Rolling Bearings for Gearboxes guide extends to a full 31- pages and is divided into eight sections. Section one gives an overview of all current gear design, outlining their advantages and disadvantages.

Section two then moves on to discuss the numerous factors that affect bearing performance in gearboxes. All of these are considered individually with guidance as to the relevant questions to ask regarding each specific factor. Section three deals with bearing types and their characteristics, and here the user is guided by simple-to-use graphics. Sections four and five deal first with bearing positions inside gearboxes and then with bearing life.

The final three sections devote seven pages to materials, lubrication, the consequences of the lack of it, and proper dimensioning of bearings. The penultimate lubrication section provides a useful calculation of the type and quantity of oil required for optimum bearing performance. Completing what is a very comprehensive, concise publication, the final section deals with Proper Dimensioning of bearings. It gives procedures for proper fit selection, and tables detailing fits for radial bearings with housings.
