14 Mar Efficient and safe rolling bearings installation
Induction heating is a crucial process in the safe and efficient installation of rolling bearings. These heavy-duty machine elements have high-precision components that must be selected carefully to ensure their effectiveness in the application. However, the mounting and dismounting of rolling bearings are equally important in ensuring their optimal performance and longevity.
Tony Tormey, Category Manager of Industrial Bearings at Motion, emphasises that the life of a bearing depends on proper fitment during the initial mounting process. Induction heating plays a vital role in achieving this goal, as it provides a reliable and efficient method of heating the bearing to expand it and facilitate its fitting. By using induction heating, the bearing’s components can be accurately and safely mounted, avoiding any risk of damage or wear during the process. At Motion, safety and efficiency are top priorities, and the company provides customers with the guidance and tools needed to ensure the proper installation and performance of rolling bearings.
