Locating bearing carriers

Precise gear-mesh in light alloy-cased gearboxes

Locating Bearing Carrier
Stable gearbox operating conditions require precise gear-mesh, which in turn requires rigid support for the input shaft and lay shaft. The locating bearing carriers can help achieve it for light alloy-cased gearboxes.

Designed to minimize the effects of differential thermal expansion, this pre-assembled unit features two bearings in a sheet metal carrier with axial retainer plate. The unit bolts into the gearbox housing, eliminating the need for outer ring seats ad snap rings. Benefits include:
  • Reduced system costs
  • Improved operating efficiency
  • Reduced noise and vibration
  • More compact, lightweight designs
  • Optimized designs before prototyping
  • Reduced development time
  • Simplified assembly
