Principles of bearing unit selection and application

In this section, and its sub-sections, the designer can find the necessary basic information, presented in the order in which it is generally required. Obviously, it is impossible to include all the information needed to cover every conceivable application. For this reason, in some places, reference is made to the SKF application engineering service. This technical service can perform complex calculations, diagnose and solve bearing performance issues, and help with the bearing selection process. SKF also recommends this service to anyone working to improve the performance of their application.
The information contained in this section and its sub-sections is general and applies to most ball bearing units. Information specific to one bearing unit type is provided in the relevant product section.
