AST Highlighted in Design World
The life of individual bearings varies considerably, even if they are the same size, same design, and are used under the same operating conditions. When considering bearings for a new project, it is critical for engineers to understand the effects of a range of load issues and operating conditions to optimize bearing performance and operating life.
In a recent article for Design World, AST Bearings engineers provide a tutorial on bearing life and the choices to consider when bearings are subjected to harsh environmental conditions. Topics include bearing life ratings, dynamic and static load ratings, load rating standards, and bearing usage in three common and challenging operating environments.
