The SKF formula for rolling bearing life

Rolling bearing design has benefited from improved materials technology,especially steel cleanliness and better understanding of the tribo-physical conditions that prolong operational life. Users of bearings have put an increasing emphasis on safe design coupled with lighter,more competitively priced products. This has put increasing pressure on bearing manufacturers to offer predictable performance in rolling bearings.In turn,this has encouraged researchers to review and update standards for bearing life to take into account the tremendous progress in engineering technology.As a consequence, SKF has introduced the latest manifestation of its famous formula for predicting rolling bearing life expectancy.
