Positioning method for bearing rings commonly used in bearings

Positioning of the inner ring of the bearing

  When the inner ring of the bearing is mounted on the shaft, the bearing is generally fixed by the shoulder on one side, and the other side is fixed by a nut, a retaining washer or a spring retaining ring. The dimensions of the contact between the shoulder and the axial fixed part and the inner ring of the bearing can be determined according to the mounting dimensions of the various types of bearings listed in the bearing size table.

  (1) Nut positioning

  In the case of a high bearing speed and a large axial load, the end face of the nut in contact with the inner ring of the bearing should be perpendicular to the center line of rotation of the shaft. Otherwise, even tightening the nut will destroy the bearing installation position and the normal working state of the bearing, reducing the bearing rotation accuracy and service life. In particular, when the inner bore of the bearing and the shaft are loosely fitted, strict control is required.

  In order to prevent the nut from loosening during the rotation process, it is necessary to take appropriate technical measures to prevent loosening. Use the nut and the retaining washer to position, insert the inner teeth of the retaining washer into the keyway of the shaft, and bend one of the teeth on the outer ring into the slit of the nut.

  (2) Spring retainer positioning

  In the case where the bearing is subjected to a small axial load, the rotational speed is not high, the shaft is short, and it is difficult to machine the thread on the journal, the elastic retaining ring with a rectangular cross section can be used for positioning. This method is convenient for loading and unloading, has a small position and is simple to manufacture.

  (3) Thrust washer positioning

  In the case where the journal is short and the journal is difficult to machine into a thread, and the bearing speed is high and the axial load is large, the washer can be positioned, that is, the washer is positioned with two or more screws on the end face of the shaft. Stop the washer or wire to prevent looseness.

  (4) Alignment sleeve positioning

  Spherical roller bearings with low bearing speeds and withstand smooth radial loads and low axial loads can be mounted on the optical axis by means of tapered adapter sleeves. The adapter sleeve and the retaining washer are used for positioning. The bearing is positioned by the friction of the nut lock sleeve.

  (5) Tapered bearing positioning of the inner hole

  The tapered bearing of the inner hole is mounted on the taper shaft. It is necessary to make the axial load check the shaft and the bearing. Therefore, attention should be paid to the directionality of the inner taper when installing. If the bearing is at the shaft end and is allowed to be machined into a thread at the shaft end, it can be positioned directly with a nut.

  If the bearing is not mounted on the shaft end, the shaft is not allowed to be machined into threads. In this case, the threaded ring of the two halves can be snapped into the groove of the shaft and the bearing can be positioned with a nut.

  (6) Special positioning

  In some special cases, when the shoulder and fillet dimensions of the shaft are not as determined by the mounting dimensions listed in this catalog, a transition washer can be used as the axial support.

  Positioning of bearing outer ring

  When the outer ring of the bearing is installed in the hole of the outer casing, the inner side of the outer hole of the outer casing generally has a position for fixing the bearing on the shoulder, and the other side is positioned by the end cover, the threaded ring and the hole with a flexible retaining ring.

  (1) End cap positioning

  End cap positioning is used for all types of radial and angular contact bearings, with high bearing speeds and large axial loads. The end cap is screwed to the outer ring of the bearing, and the end cap can also be made into a labyrinth seal.

  (2) Thread ring positioning

  The bearing speed is high and the axial load is large. If it is not suitable for positioning with the end cover, the threaded ring can be used to position the radial bearing and the thrust bearing. At this time, the axial clearance of the bearing can be adjusted.

  (3) Flexible retaining ring positioning

  The positioning method occupies a small axial position, is easy to install and disassemble, is simple to manufacture, and is suitable for withstanding a small axial load. An adjustment ring is added between the bearing and the spring to facilitate adjustment of the axial position.

  (4) Deep groove ball bearings with retaining grooves on the outer ring of the bearing can be positioned by the snap ring.

  This type is used when the retaining shoulder cannot be machined due to conditional restrictions in the housing bore, or when the component must be reduced in profile size.
