Mounting instructions

It is normal to use backing bearings belonging to the same cross sectional height group on any one support shaft. After removing the locking devices used during transportation, the backing bearings should be pushed on to the shaft alternately with the saddles using suitable mounting equipment. When mounting backing bearings, care must be taken to see that, for example, the inner ring of cylindrical roller backing bearings is not pushed proud of the roller complement as this will cause the rollers of full complement bearings to fall out of the bearing.
To avoid a negative effect of the wall thickness variation of the inner rings on the quality of the rolled material, all inner rings on a support shaft should be turned so that the arrows indicating the position of the maximum wall thickness all point in the same direction.
