22 Feb NTN EA surface technology extends the life expectancy of bearings
In certain operating situations, industry is still experiencing premature fatigue failures of bearings well before their design life is achieved, according to Ross Lee, Technical Manager of Strategic Partnerships —Bearings for Motion Australia. Overwhelmingly, these bearing failures are due to what is known as “surface-initiated fatigue,” he says. “As this naming suggests, the fatigue and subsequent cracking or flaking of bearing rings and rollers in contact originates at the surface, and results from one or a combination of operating conditions.”
