Industrial bearings are simple mechanical components, but are essential for motion applications. The purpose of the bearing is to reduce the friction between two moving parts by making the surface roll instead of sliding.
The bearing consists of smooth rollers or metal balls and smooth inner and outer surfaces (called raceways) on which the rollers or balls roll. These rollers or balls act as a load carrier for the device, allowing it to rotate freely.
Bearings usually encounter two kinds of loads: radial load and axial load. Radial loads occur perpendicular to the shaft, while axial loads occur parallel to the shaft. Depending on the application in which the bearing is used, some bearings can bear both loads at the same time.
All bearings need to exhibit low friction, minimal runout or clearance guidance, quiet operation, low lubricant requirements, low wear and long service life.
In addition to all these factors, different industries also have their own special requirements based on special operating environments. Some of these include: Temperature change, Moisture content,Speed/revolutions per minute ,Stain resistant etc.
The FV Bearing application mainly industries include steel industry, papermaking, wind energy, mining, agriculture and cement industry.
