SKF Explorer class deep groove ball bearings
Motor encoder units use SKF Explorer deep groove ball bearings. These bearings are suitable for high speeds and are robust in operation. They can accommodate not only relatively heavy radial loads, but also axial loads in both directions and are typically used to locate the shaft axially. Furthermore they are noted for their high manufacturing accuracy, low noise level and low frictional moment. Efficient seals combined with the grease fill provide a relubrication-free solution for the service life of the bearing.
