Lubrication is an important aspect of any moving component, reducing friction and wear between parts, and helping to seal against contamination. However, that doesn’t mean it can’t feel like a chore sometimes, especially if the parts needing lubrication are difficult to access.
Premature bearing failure, which is when a bearing fails before reaching its expected service life, is a common occurrence. But that doesn’t mean you have to accept it.
There is no denying that bearings are under a lot of stress. This stress causes wear, eventually leading to bearing failure. But is this inevitable? Or is there a way to make bearings last longer?
With up to 16% of premature bearing failures attributed to incorrect mounting methods, it’s clear that getting the mounting and dismounting of bearings right is key to achieving the maximum service life of your components. When the right tools are used, mounting and dismounting bearings correctly is be easy.
