The type of damage to the bearing is then used to determine the possible cause of the damage, this is how failures can be predicted before they happen. Not only this, but the app also allows the user to access information about handling bearings correctly & correct mounting, lubrication and maintenance practices. This helps to show the user how severely these factors can affect bearing life.
Finally, to simplify the identification of the bearing damage for the user, the app also provides photos and recordings of typical types of bearing failures, so users can clearly identify their issue.
Overall, this app serves as a great aid to prevent premature bearings failure and can easily become an essential part of your preventative maintenance procedures.
