How to select the correct bearing configuration for your machine?


The type of machinery is different, the service conditions of the bearings will be different, and the performance requirements are also different.

Generally speaking, there are more than two bearings that would be used on a shaft.

In order to facilitate axial positioning, most of the bearings are used as fixed-end bearings, and the rest are used as floating-end bearings.

The following table lists the choice of fixed end and floating end bearing structure.
