Because the degree of the interference fit is relatively low for super-precision bearings, lower ring dismounting forces are needed compared to other rolling bearings.
For bearings in spindle applications, the dismounting forces can be estimated as follows:
- dismounting a set of three angular contact ball bearings from the housing → F ~ 0,02 D
- dismounting a set of three angular contact ball bearings from the shaft → F ~ 0,07 d
- dismounting a cylindrical roller bearing from its tapered seat → F ~ 0,3 d
|F||=||dismounting force [kN]|
|D||=||bearing outside diameter [mm]|
|d||=||bearing bore diameter [mm]|
