Y-bearing flanged units with a pressed steel housing

Y-bearings with grub screws
  1. Remove any burrs on the shaft with emery cloth or a fine file, wipe clean with a cloth.
  2. Mount any components that are on the shaft between the two Y-bearing units.
  3. Place one housing half into position on the machine wall with threaded fasteners (fig. 1).
  4. Slide the Y-bearing onto the shaft and into the housing half with the locking device facing outwards.
  5. Place the second housing half into position over the Y-bearing (fig. 2).
  6. Fit the attachment bolts or nuts but do not tighten them.
  7. Mount the second flanged Y-bearing unit on the other shaft end, following steps 3 to 6.
  8. Fully tighten the attachment bolts or nuts holding the flanged units in place.
  9. Align the shaft in the bearing arrangement axially and, if possible, turn it a few times.
  10. Tighten the grub screws in the inner ring of both units to the tightening torque listed in the product tables.
Y-bearings with an eccentric locking collar
  1. Remove any burrs on the shaft with emery cloth or a fine file, wipe clean with a cloth.
  2. Mount any components that are on the shaft between the two Y-bearing units.
  3. Place one housing half into position on the machine wall with threaded fasteners (fig. 3).
  4. With the eccentric locking collar removed, slide the Y-bearing onto the shaft and into the housing half with the locking device facing outwards.
  5. Place the second housing half into position over the Y-bearing (fig. 4).
  6. Fit the attachment bolts or nuts but do not tighten them.
  7. Mount the second flanged Y-bearing unit on the other shaft end, following steps 3 to 6.
  8. Fully tighten the attachment bolts or nuts holding the flanged units in place.
  9. Align the shaft in the bearing arrangement axially and, if possible, turn it a few times.
  10. Place the eccentric locking collar on the inner ring extension of both Y-bearing units and snug tighten them in the main direction of rotation.
  11. Tighten the locking collars to their final position, using a hook spanner with a stud engaging the hole in the circumference of the collar.
  12. Tighten the grub screw in the eccentric locking collar of both units to the tightening torque listed in the product tables.
