Bearings can be seen everywhere in our lives and work, such as household appliances, garden tools and transportation. For different application scenarios, different bearings assume different roles.
The bearings commonly used in vehicles represented by 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, and 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 the use of suitable grease, and the internal design of the clearance 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 bearing of the automobile condensing fan motor should take into account the continuous working condition of the motor under high temperature conditions and so on.
In garden tools represented by lawn mowers, gearboxes have extremely high requirements for the sealing of the bearings, neither allowing the grease in the box to penetrate into the bearings nor leak the grease. Due to the higher pressure in the gearbox, the bearing is also required to have a special 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 of them are thin-walled series, and 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, and 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.
In addition to the above-mentioned industries, in industrial motors, the bearings used are usually required to withstand heavy loads, and the bearing environment is relatively harsh. Bearings in motors such as household appliances such as air conditioners and washing machines have very strict requirements for low noise and high rotation accuracy.
